Northern Autumn

Here in the north …

… the rivers are low. It has been hot and dry.

But it’s cooler now and the autumn colours emerge quickly and early.

The birches are lovely …

… and the air invigorating and fresh.

But soon, all this will be covered in snow. We have to enjoy the wonders of the north as they appear today. They will not be the same tomorrow.

Greetings and good autumn wishes from my home away from home, the Northwest Territories, at 61° N latitude.
