Green and orange

It seems every tree has a different way of transforming into autumn colors. The outer branches of this specimen have taken on brilliant oranges while the interior still remains deep forest green.

Color transition

As the autumn colors brighten, the summer colors fade. There is still beautiful color in this hydrangea, but the wedgwood blue of summer is all but gone, replaced with browns and pastels that portend the end of the season.

It seems that we too go though a similar transition as the seasons change. Our energy level drops and our outlook shifts as the days get shorter and the temperatures cooler.

Chill in the air

Summer never seems to last very long, and too soon the days and nights turn cool. What follows are the colors of autumn. They sneak in until one day you notice the deep greens are giving way to new shades and hues.

Fall can be a nice season, but it is sad to say goodbye to the warmth of summer.

Lunar Sandwich

Nestled between those clouds is our tiny Moon.

At least it looks tiny.

I was surprised to learn that the Moon is actually one forth the diamater of the Earth, which seems pretty big. But it is only 1/80th of the mass of our home planet, so I guess it is small.

Regardless of it's size, it looks pretty lonely out there.

Mystery photo take 4

I have not posted a mystery photo in a long time, and this really is not much of a mystery. The photo was taken so close-up that is difficult to see exactly what it is, other than a remarkable work of art.

How 'bout them apples!

Yes, I live in apple country. Webster is full of apple orchards and this time of year the bright red fruit starts to show its ripeness.

What amazes me is the productivity of these trees. It seems there is more apples then leaves. Makes me a little jealous... wish I could be as prolific.

Yellow house

A really bright yellow, especially in the early morning light. Strange design... looks like they added on to the addition. And the condition of that yellow siding does not look too healthy. In fact it appears the only thing holding up the house is the vibrant color.

Looking out my back door

As the afternoon shower faded, the western sky broke allowing a shaft of light to penetrate onto the treetops, creating a contrast to the still dark clouds above.
