Like trying to get a good photo of the brilliant harvest moon--which is no easy feat for a novice photographer. This is a best effort, using my Canon SX130 IS set in "low light" mode:
Then this morning at 7:15 a.m. the sky was a blazing red for about 10 minutes. Just time to grab the camera, set it on "super vivid" and get this shot of the sun coming up behind the trees. What's the old saying--"Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning." Hope that means we'll have rain before long--good reading weather.
Finally, yesterday I was in our local Paul's Fruit Market and spotted the first apple cider from Huber's Orchard & Winery. That, along with the cool temps this morning, called for making spiced apple cider. It's easy. Just simmer 1/2 gal. of cider with the juice and peel of a lemon and orange, 2 sticks cinnamon, 1 T whole cloves about 30 minutes--or until the house smells delicious. Enjoy hot with your favorite book or movie.
Keep your camera handy and be on the lookout for signs of fall. It's just around the corner.
