One Day, Two Seasons
We’re at that time of year when the day begins in one season (fall), almost reaches a previous season (summer), and ends back in fall. Days like this are enjoyable. Mornings have a chill, the afternoons are warm, and we end the day wearing jackets again. Our weather could stay like this all year as far as I am concerned. My photo efforts today captured split-seconds in time in both seasons.
At almost the peak of temperatures for the day I photographed saw-tooth sunflowers against a pretty blue sky dotted with a few clouds.
Later in the day I paddled my canoe on the Wapsipinicon River as the sun was beginning to set.
During my evening paddle I was hoping to somehow capture the transition of seasons, but wide shots were not accomplishing my goal. Leaf color is still some time away from it peak. Finally, I found some autumn leaves in a setting that I thought might be the composition I was looking for. This came close, but not quite. I’ll be working to improve this as autumn comes into full view.
