11.20.2021 Don’t let the warm light fool you

it was cold on Mount Pollux yesterday morning. After shooting the frames for the eclipse, I went up on the hill ( don’t let the name “Mount” fool you either) hoping to catch the setting moon.  But there were thick clouds on the western horizon so I turned my attention to this tree.  You may recognize it as I’ve posted other shots of it before. But it looked so good in the light that I couldn’t resist.

There are several similar trees as the population up there is dwindling with time.

  1. I love how the light and shadows effect the grass in this shot. Everything is so crisp on mornings like this.

  2. Speaking of the Mount in Mount Pollux, have you ever been to The Mount in Lenox, which was the home of writer Edith Wharton? We visited it maybe a dozen years ago. I see they’re currently hosting an exhibit/event called Night Wood: https://www.edithwharton.org/

    A clear night late in fall usually means a very cold condition. I am glad you could not resist and took this beautiful picture of the tree, Steve!

    I wondered just how cold you’d gotten up there, and when I checked, I found you certainly are chilly! It’s just so hard to imagine below freezing temperatures ‘already.’ The warmth of that light certainly does belie the actual conditions; it’s lovely.

    • It was about 24° at the time of this image. At least that’s what my car’s thermometer said as I got out of the out 15 minutes earlier. It was a dry cold however and there wasn’t much frost. This morning is overcast which held the heat from yesterday so in the mid 30’s. Sounds chilly to you in Texas too, I bet.
      It’s funny and beautiful in the winter when this same light is reflected in the snow covered landscape. I am in no hurry for that though. Thanks, Linda!

    I love the way the tree is lit – a moment that can be very short! The colouring and darkness of the clouds and the rich colours of the ground frame it beautifully.
