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 … Continue reading

11.19.2021 Fog Friday-Same Neighborhood, Different Tree

One more in the continuing study of Owens Pond tree reflections. Not as gloomy today, at least so far, although I missed the peak of the eclipse.  But witnessing a partial was worth the early rise.  Now, do I get … Continue reading

11.11.2021 Aging beauty

I’ve only photographed hosta twice.  Both times the back of the leaves drew my attention.  This one during the summer backlit to show the structure and now with the beauty of aging dressed in frosty finery. Not exactly in another … Continue reading

11.10.2021 Isolated Light

Another day, another local conservation area visit.  This time I returned to Sweet Alice where I shared the foliage and island a short time ago.  This time I never left the parking lot as I was after frost yet again.  … Continue reading
