It's a dark and dreary morning in the woods. I took this photo moments before a heavy rain started. This morning was far warmer than is typical for November, but even so the dreariness of November somehow still comes through. Apparently, dreariness has nothing to do with the temperature.
The woods are pretty barren right now. The winter rest is beginning. This morning I spent some time trying to find something small and interesting on the forest floor--perhaps an interesting mushroom or fungus--but came up empty handed. I expect such an expedition will be easier on a brighter and clearer day, and not when my mind is already half at work.
