Autumn Sunsets

Monday, September 25, 2006
There is something particularly alluring about the sunsets we get here in autumn. The light is different from summer light, it's richer and more saturated. And along about 7:30 pm, an hour that in summer, would find us still outside playing whiffleball, the sun is in its last throes, dying really.

On a bright evening, the sunset's rays hit the trees along the east border of the meadow, and it's an explosion of color. Add a few bluebirds and cardinals perching in the sumac or goldenrod and you've got enough color to make a peacock dizzy.

The beauty a nice sunset gives us makes it a little bit easier to say goodbye to the long, lush evenings of another summer.
