11.24.2013 The Touch

Well, I am sort of embarrassed to be giving such a romantic title to this image.  But it seems appropriate so I’ll stick with it…unless someone comes up with a better one.  I am open always to suggestions.  Maybe “The Creation of Adam” would be a good alternative. LOL

I was going through some old folders and found this which I had never shared here or on FB.  It is one of those things…you just forget they are there after enough time goes by.  Anyway, here is an image I noticed while doing a lap around the Quabbin Tower parking lot several years ago.  It probably does not matter where it was but it seemed like a fun fact about where one might find an image.Foggy-Summit-Foliage-1-900WebI hope everyone has had a nice weekend.  It is turning to winter here. 18°F here this morning with 15-20mph winds and then some strong gusts.  Already looking forward to Spring. 🙂

  1. This is beautiful and I love the title too. Getting cold here…had snow yesterday Brrr!


  2. Great title and a lovely photo. I ike this one a lot. But then I like all your photos. Winter finally arrived Thursday night around 9:30pm with strong winds and misting rain. It has steadily grown colder and today feels very cold. Heard that it might sleet or maybe some freezing rain. Sure hated to see my butterfly garden bite the dust. I was photographing butters on Wednesday- had about 10-12 Queens, I sure hope the Queens made it south in time. Yesterday I saw 3 huge gaggles of snow geese of around 300 plus in each gaggle. They are headed for the rice fields in south Texas.


    • I guess it is all relative, Yvonne. I never think of Texas and freezing rain at the same time but you do get some winter there too. We may get a storm Tuesday into Wednesday which will ruin travel for a lot of people. We just have a modest meal at home.

    I love the title. : )

    Superb photo Steve and why not a romantic title? Very touching indeed.


  5. What a beautiful photograph! 🙂

    Another beauty – please stop for a while – we are trying to come to a decision here! 🙂 (Don’t stop, your images are wonderful). I like the way the one tree is blushing from ‘the touch’. Have a lovely Thanksgiving and welcome to winter. Today the ground is white and the sky is a very light grey – almost white – hard to discern the horizon. Waiting for the sun to come back – it is usually very sunny here – but that also means its very cold with the clear bright blue sky. People are happier when its cold and sunny than mild and grey.


  7. Thank you, Rod. Blushing. 🙂
    Just doing my job…and if I am doing it well then I guess that makes choosing more difficult. 🙂
    Is Thanksgiving celebrated in Canada? I should know that. There won’t be frost on the Thanksgiving harvest as we are going to warm up…relatively…and see rain tomorrow. But Thursday should be pleasant.


  8. I, too, see the creation of Adam here.

    Definitely one of your best autumn shots!!! Very glad that you remembered this photo and posted it. It is lovely with the fog and the different autumn colours.
    Fantastic moody photo with an appropriate title 😉

    Green Heron Steve: Absolutely wonderful photo and caption, you mushy-hearted wonder, you! I have no improvements to offer on the caption, but in future if you want to dial down the mush factor, you could always go with something like “Get your leafy mitts offa me; I’m not that kinda tree.” (See, I told you I didn’t have any improvements).

    The mist, the glorious contrasting colors, and the tree bark texture all add up to a stunning photo. It’s very mysterious; alas, that my parking lot photos would ever look half as grand.

    My eyes have missed your photography candy. Computer hiatus can be restful on the orbs and also a complete drag; I have lots to catch up on. Nom-nom-nom……

    Happy weekend to you!
