An Evening Shot. August 13, 2009

Sunsets in these parts have lately been pretty “meh,” with occasional fleeting color thrown in.

One evening, around the time of the Sturgeon Moon, the western sky offered up a puff of pink as the land lost its light:

pink sunset

It was the kind of night which yielded a better experience than photograph.

Lately I’ve been stopping when the light gets good, getting out of the car and into the fields, leaving the camera behind.  I don’t want to miss this, this Season of Light.  I want to live it.  And sometimes that means having my hands free, traveling lightly, focusing on a distant point of interest.

Sometimes I don’t have much to show you here, and if I’m lucky, it’s because I’m just too busy looking at it myself.

I do understand that you want to thoroughly enjoy being part of the experience without the distraction of the camera. Still – I am very pleased that you had that camera along this time. So very beautiful.

Don’t you know that you’re supposed to put your personal enjoyment of existence aside for photographic evidence for us? 😉

We live at CT River edge and have enough inversion smo. We don’t get even that color of red or orange. Wann’a bet we are SO AGAINST the wood burner in Greenfield? Crankee Crapple Candle is bad enough as a neighbor, add two tons of trees a minute to the mix and we can’t breathe. Follow the money. Who’s “good idea” was this?

Not mine, for sure. If Boston wants to burn trees, let them burn them in Belmont or Arlington.
