Portland in November
Seasonal rain has begun to arrive in Western Oregon. I love the quality of the light and colors on a cloudy day right after a rain shower at this time of year. Some trees have lost leaves. Others, such as these, just developed color this week. Conifers will thrive over the Winter, and grass will become greener by the day until the area resembles pictures of Ireland at its greenest. Quiet envelopes the neighborhoods in Winter, people turn inward, and bookstores and coffee houses are popular. Photographers may spend less time taking photos and more time processing their archives on the computer.
