Falling In

The season of Fall 1 began on Thursday. With the march of the seasons the light changed from the honey glow of late Summer to a more crisp light anticipating the coming chill. It’s probably my second-favorite light in which to practice my hobby.

Aside from the allergies 2, I love the fall. A lot of folks enjoy Spring, but that season is number two on my list of favorites 3. I do enjoy the emergence of new life we get in Spring. The presentation of life exploding into beauty, as if defying the oncoming winter, however, leaves me awestruck. October may be my favorite month of the year.

To celebrate the arrival of Fall, my neighbor and I headed down to the Delaware and took some photos of the first Fall sunset. The colors were stunning, and we even had the added bonus of a flock of Canadian Geese swimming in our field of view. It was a great scene.

The shot, as presented here, is darker than it exists either directly off my camera or my memory. I kept the shadows dark and warmed the light a bit so the colors in the sky could pop all the more. I am very pleased with the results!


  1. Or “Autumn,” if you want to be all proper about it. Look, the leaves fall off the trees, so we call it “Fall.” Is it original? No, but I grew up in a town called “Oreland” because of the iron ore mine located there. Oreland is next to a town called “Flourtown” for the flour mill within its boundaries. These two towns are part of Springfield Township. Named for, you guessed it, springs. We see something, we describe it, that’s it’s name. Alright with you? 
  2. Basically, I’m allergic to New Jersey. God has a sense of humor, calling me here. 
  3. Winter is the worst. If you need to know where Summer fits, go back and count.

    • Thanks Hannah! I’m a bit private when it comes to my email address (Gen Xers still have some delusions of privacy). But I LIKE your idea. This might be either a great weekly topic to encourage discussion, or a google group for “daily bloggers” or something.
