That Feeling that Winter is Coming - City and Country

November is a grey, ominous month when one feels that the winter is nudging ever closer. When I wake up at my apartment in the city, the mornings are cold and the sky seems to be pressing down. 

The sun sets so early these days. I took this picture looking out the window of my office building in Gatineau an hour before I left work. It was completely dark when I did leave.

This weekend, I was at my place in the country when I saw the first significant snowfall of the season. The ground was soon completely covered. Rather pretty, really! I like the way one can see the paths clearly defined as white roads between the brown tufts of vegetation.

The middle photo is very striking.
I also enjoyed the brief snowfall - white is better than brown.

November is a time of such anticipation. You can feel the coming of winter in the air. These shots capture that feeling perfectly.
