Late Fall Palette

“All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey…”
the Mammas and the Papas sang mournfully, but I enjoy this time of year. Colors and textures that have been hidden by leaves all summer are suddenly exposed. Little bits of moss, the fossil rock in my garden the lichen on the laurel are quiet reminders that nature is delicate and complex as well as vivid and wild.


About the author jmankowsky

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
