10.01.2018 Farewell, September.

As I mentioned yesterday, September flew by.  Pretty sure I’m not the only one who felt that way.  Lots of rain and unseasonable warmth that, I hope, will produce some nice color for the October foliage show. Another thing that comes with October is fog.

To October…and Beyond.  🙂

  1. Beautiful days you are having. We are having grey, grey, grey. Even with all the lights blazing I don’t have enough light in the studio.

    • Grey, grey, grey today. 🙂 It appears that what we are about to receive came from your neighborhood. No complaints. After lack of water for several years in a row, I am always happy to see some more. If it never ends, well that’s another story. But we’ve had our share of nice days lately.


      • We had a nice thunderstorm last night. My daughter and I went to the bog yesterday and the grey skies were wonderful. I quite like a grey drippy day, only not when I’m in the studio. I know what you mean about the moisture. Illinois was droughty off and on for years, and the water level in our lakes and the bog had really declined. I even wonder if that contributed to the lack of oak regeneration we’ve been seeing over the past few decades.

      • I would guess that lack of water contributes to a lot of ecological distress.


      • Yes. We’ll get one impressive thunderstorm and people think, “no drought”, but they are missing the signs.


  2. Yes, that’s welcome fog, all right. Not something we see much of over here in Austin.

    Fog can add such a great element to photographs, as you’ve shown here. Really nice views. I always like the feel of mystery I feel with fog. And also a sense of calm. Very curious to see what this fall/winter brings.

    • Thanks, Bernie. We went from sweltering to cool almost overnight. Now we are still cool but a bit of a warm up on the way for the end of the week. It’s too early to fire up the wood stove.


  5. Splendid scenery, Many layers of color with fog in the valleys. A very interesting and lovely photo.

    You would have felt at home in our city this morning. I think you would have taken better photos than the ones in this article. https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/107526074/heavy-morning-fog-causes-widespread-delays-at-christchurch-airport

    Your hills and valleys really do allow for some wonderful photographs. When the fog rolls in here, there’s no way to get above it — at least, practically. People on the 45th floor of downtown office buildings sometimes get wonderful photos, but we flatlanders are denied such pleasures.

    • It’s too bad there are no mountains close at hand for you to get away to. On the other hand, I wouldn’t mind some prairie to enjoy around here. There are some wide open locations in New England but they are hours away from here. We’ve got meadows which are great, but a horizon that goes on forever would be nice too.
