Today's image goes back to a much warmer day this past May when I was chasing the Cumbres & Toltec trains.  This is the one coming from the Colorado side.  It is just beginning to enter the switchback up to Cumbres Pass where it will gain quite a bit of feet in elevation.  It is already gaining here and you can tell that it is working a bit hard by the smoke.

It's blah and dreary today so I decided on something bright and it was a type of photo they were looking for over on Google Plus so helped me decide.  Google Plus is going away next August so trying to find a new place to play.  I am not all that fond of Social Media and G+ is the only one I have ever been active in so trying to decide the right place to go to have the same kind of experience.  Anyway, these are some colorful Tulips that I shot in Wamego Kansas at their Tulip festival.

Today's image is another of the lovely leaves with a bubbly bokeh background of the Red Maple I discovered this autumn on the outskirts of the new land.  It really put on quite the show of color.

We went from the colorful scene I posted yesterday very quickly to this scene one week ago today.  You can still see some color in the trees in the background.  This was the perfect snow, I loved the way it clung to the trees and made a winter wonderland in autumn and it also did not stick on the roads.  We got about 4 inches of it and it was still falling at this point.  I shot this image at the pond on my new land.

Hope you are having a happy Hump Day Wednesday.  This is an image I captured out on Fort Riley a couple of weeks ago when the autumn colors were at their peak.  I loved how the sun was highlighting the tops of them.  The colors are gone now after our snows and bitter temps but it was beautiful while it lasted.

With the bitter cold weather we have been having, everything is killed off now.  I decided to share the color version of the monochrome Clematis I shared a little bit ago.  It really gives a pop of color.

I posted an image of the Mulberry tree in it's golden glory last week and this image is what it and other trees looked like on Thursday afternoon.  We were having a lovely clingy snow and you can still see some of the golden leaves peaking out from it.  It was very beautiful in our area until later on Friday when the wind blew most of it down.  Yesterday it was pretty much gone but overnight we received another inch or so and we are white again.  I am about done with winter and it hasn't even actually begun.
