Fall's Hanging On, But Winter's Already Claimed the Upper Hillside

It's definitely fall in Anchorage, with winter having already made a preview appearance.

The geese are packing meals for their flights south. 

The cottonwood leaves cover our back yard, though, if you look closely, the amur maple leaves are still on the tree (on the right.)  The come out later in the spring too.

Up at Powerline Pass, the snow we had in town stuck.  This was Sunday evening. 


  1. Apart from the lovely vivid colour in the top shot I like the repetition and implied diagonals they really make the shot!

  2. Great post.

    1. I'm sure they know best.

      I think of Dickens and Christmas carols...and the geese are getting that a line? should be. Force feeding them because they wouldn't do so on their own -- not like humans.
