Using my favorite lens, a Canon EF300L IS f/2.8 with a 1.4X Extender on a Canon 7D, I got this photo of two Bald Eagles (juveniles; about 2-4 years old is my guess) from 200 yards on the Little Buffalo River yesterday. My best guess is the eagle on the left is a female. Next year they will probably have white heads and tails.

There were long icicles around and about Roark Bluff at Steel Creek today and water was still high enough to float today. The ice in the sickles appeared aqua-blue in the late light today or maybe it was minerals.  The temperature started at 15F at 6:30 AM but rose to 50F by 2 PM; beautiful day in the mountains:

I started the day at Lost Valley; with flurries and low 20’s after a night of high North winds. Over at Lost Valley the water was running well in Clark Creek and the Beech Tees offered a nice contrast:

I drove into Jasper today and immediately noticed freezing/frozen fog on most mountain tops. The temperature in my yard was 37F but at 2000″ it was in the upper 20s. I drove up to above 2000′ on the way back and got a few iPhone photos:

The colors this year never popped as they do in late October to the first few days of November. The result is a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th peak. Many trees refused to change from green to their fall colors until this morning. I drove into Jasper from my home today and was surprised to see that some south facing mountain tops had extraordinary orange, yellow, rust coloration; actually very pretty. Along a few rivers or larger creeks their was all lots of reds and oranges. By this time of the year the forest in usually brown.

This will be the final coloration however as an arctic blast is headed for us by morning. It is 70F  at noon today and tomorrow’s high will be in the low 40s and then 10 days, at least, of of temperatures way below mid-November’s to late-Novembers norms. I do expect teens with hight in the very low 30’s by Thursday:
