9-22-14 Last Sunset Summer 2014

As I post this at 10:29 PM EDT the Autumn Equinox is here. In New York, the summer was not very summer like. I will miss it anyway as it was a momentous season for my family.

I went down to the river this evening to say goodbye to the summer. The wind was blowing hard and the temperature was dropping. Fall is here. These are a few of the images that I brought back.

7-26-14: Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

The challenge is something you love. It doesn’t actually have to be anything to do with summer but, why not.  This is from Wellfleet, Massachusetts, a place I truly love.

06-13-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra Extra

Today was an Extra day all around. Friday the 13th AND a full moon?  What’s up with that? Anyway the moon put me in mind of this Cape Cod extra. The shot was lined up and ready to go and suddenly the fog thinned slightly…

A very pretty day in Wellfleet today.

True the temperature was only around 60 and the wind was kicking up but It is the unofficial start of summer they tell me and the Atlantic beckoned…

“Weather forecast for tonight: dark.”

George Carlin

A few lazy snowflakes are coming down outside. “They” think we will only get 1-3 inches but Cape Cod and Down East Maine are supposed to get hit hard.

But for those folks who are feeling as if winter will never end, a little slice of July 2013.
