Changing seasons

Today was one of those early reminders that fall is fickle in the mountains, as sunny days bathed in cerulean skies surrendered to an ominous blanket of gray.  We had clouds, rain, and cold most of the day until the gray layer stripped away late in the afternoon.  As it slowly peeled back the clouds to reveal the sun, I was hopeful of some nice views of Pikes Peak with its first real blanket of snow.  The Peak remained cloaked until I was almost home, when the clouds fell away to reveal their prize - snow capped glory!  Enjoy - fall is here, and it is fleeting....

Although I'll miss the warm weather, it's fun seeing the snow show up on the peaks.

Cold weather clouds can be interesting too; more smooth & sculptural vs. billowy. I've seen that already this week.

Fall is way too fast no matter how long it is. I like all the seasons but love love fall!

Summer, indian summer, two seconds of fall and then the snow flies. Isn't that how it goes?

I find the opposite seasons on your side of the world really interesting. We have mild winters. In Johannesburg, where I've lived my full 47 years, there was snow 3 times in those years. Our summer is also our wet season.
