Dave Coulston, Niles

The clashing of two seasons, fall and winter, is depicted in our Photo of the Week. Dave Coulston of Niles calls this "Snovember." He captured this image in his backyard last week. Dave probably puts it best when he says, "There will still be leaves to deal with when this snow has melted." So true Dave.

You never know what you might see when walking along the St. Joseph River in South Bend. Anne Brown captured this image on the morning of October 13th. Anne says she was walking near the South Bend Farmer's Market when her husband, Dean Alvis, spotted a double-crested cormorant sharing a log with two large turtles. She says Dean joked that it brings to mind the famous painting "Washington Crossing the Delaware!”
