November Sunset on the Lane

What little snow there was has melted but the streams are full of water and the trees bare against the evening sky. 

 You can see the lake a lot better now but the geese have gone - for a while.

It had started to ice up at the edges

 The sounds of shots from the hills, at one point a volley like the Battle of Stalingrad..

 It's hunting season in western New York and not a good idea to go off the road

Or wear deer-coloured clothes.

Hunters in camouflage and bright orange waistcoasts rumble by on all-terrain vehicles.

A few years ago, a beautiful big buck strode imperiously  through our back garden. He knew he was safe near the house. I hope he got away to enjoy more sunsets.
