On a recent post, fellow blogger Tasker Dunham commented that it was sunny again. In my reply, I promised a post with pictures of an un-sunny walk specifically for him. And now I even have pictures of TWO un-sunny walks I undertook, on the 14th and 16th of November respectively!
Sunday, the 14th, near O.K.'s village, with deep clouds over the Black Forest:
Of course, autumn colours are wonderful when they are lit up by the sun, but in my opinion, they look good no matter the weather. By mid-November, there are more leaves on the ground than on the trees, but I keep being amazed at how some orchard trees are actually still green.
And walks are important for my wellbeing, come rain or shine. Only when it is really totally dismal outside, I make an exception and don't go out during my lunch break or after work.
I have been walking for one reason or the other every day of the past week, but did not take any pictures. Just trust me if I say none of those walks was sunny!
We've seen almost no sun at all for more than a week now. According to the forecast, we can look forward to two sunny days tomorrow and Wednesday. Temperatures will drop a bit more, reaching a few degrees below freezing point at night. And by Friday, there could be the first snowfall of this season - in time for the first Advent Sunday.
