A Waxing Moon. October 9, 2011Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

Well it’s a couple of days short of a full moon and a couple of weeks short of “peak foliage” in these parts, but since it’s become obvious that those two things aren’t going to coincide, I broke out Gizmo to catch what was happening this evening.
And it looked like this.

It isn’t going to be a great year for foliage, so I’m grabbing bits of it wherever I find them.
Tomorrow I’m spending at least part of the Columbus Day holiday in Southern Vermont, expecting the colors to be a bit better and looking forward to dropping a few bucks on their local businesses – they took quite a hit from Irene and could use the “stimulus,” if you know what I mean.
