Color in the Wrong Place?

I took these pictures a couple of days ago, but I'm enjoying them today. I worked really hard and got the second revision of News from Dead Mule Swamp done! Way too much sitting, but I'm on track with my goal to release it in e-format on Dec 1. Stay tuned for a contest to win a free copy.

Here's the sunset on Nov 15. Yes, this is a color picture. But where's the color?

Meanwhile, while all the weeds have gone to gray and brown, this goldenrod is just being a rebel and hanging on to some beautifully shaded colors. Those are just the leaves... almost looks like a poinsettia.

Great pictures! The goldenrod looks pretty with all of the light gray underneath.

the contrast is beautiful, both in the sky and in the leaves.

There may not be much color in that first picture, but it is so Michigan in the winter.

that first picture looks a lot like home. Not much color around here anymore.

Very nice photos. Both of them.

Ratty- I think so too. I love it when yellow shades into maroon like that

betchai- that IS it, the contrast

Carol- dramatic, for sure

Chuck- It does seem wintery.

Ann- ha! Your gray picture with snow is a good twin for it

vanilla- your B&W with the leaves fits right in

I think both pictures are lovely - though the gray skies make me want to put on a warm sweater and drink a hot toddy.
