I usually never have time to take a walk before late afternoon when there are shadows and the sky can be getting darker. This is especially true on cloudy days such as October 14, when I took these photos of the old cottonwood tree at Larry Moore Park. It's a dying tree and is already beginning to look a bit spooky.
This second photo shows more of the tree. I focused here on the one living branch that is still green. Most of the mistletoe on this tree is even dead or dying. A bit more of this tree dies every year. I will miss it when it's finally gone.
