Amidst the fog, the day dawns in a blush of soft pinks along the salt marsh trail.
Summer’s pinks may already be a distant memory, but November still has its roses to offer.
Akin to a false sunrise, a blush of pink in the northwest sky is only a reflection of the sun rising in the east. It may be disorienting to walkers in deep woods who are without a compass and trying to find their bearings.
As they pale with the approaching winter, marsh grasses reveal subtle pinks at the bottom of their stems that were less noticeable during their green phase.
The blush of pinks and oranges at the tips of this weed growing in the gravel are reversed to the centre in its negative image. Whichever way you look at it, the landscape in November is still glowing, and has yet to lose her charm.
When a girl ceases to blush, she has lost the most powerful charm of her beauty.
