Not sure what plant these seeds are from but I’ve seen them often weightlessly floating across the meadows. They are like little silky snowflakes twinkling at sunset.
I see this as sort of a part II to my post in the late winter of 2012, Seeds and Silk. Might work as a diptych.
Have a great weekend friends!
The heavy, wet and chilly autumn snow on Friday brought down tree limbs and took out power all over our town and countryside for a few hours. The wind howled and it was gray and overcast into the night. But I woke up Saturday morning to sunshine and watched the neighbor’s frisky horses frolic on their snowy meadow with my morning coffee. By Saturday afternoon it warmed up so much and the snow melted as fast as it blew in. Sunday was gorgeous and I had a great portrait session in our meadows and on the football field in town. Turned out to be one heck of a playful weekend.
Bokeh is a term in photography that refers to the blur that occurs outside of the depth of field of the image. It’s the sparkle from the points of light in the out of focus background. And the suns rays in this image coming in from the left are simply a beautiful bonus.
Fall is in full swing and I enjoyed an evening drive and hike yesterday. The wind is calm if only for a moment so I’m collecting my fall images while I can. I get excited with the change of seasons so please hang with me while I share a bit of autumn beauty in Wyoming with you for the next few posts.
Today, Sept. 22, 2010, is the last day of summer. That means the autumnal equinox takes place tonight and we are now stepping into fall.
And even though it is overcast today, I’m looking forward to my first fall in Wyoming. I just hope the clouds clear out for tonight’s viewing of the Super Harvest Moon.
I can’t help but hear Neil Young singing “But there’s a full moon risin’, Let’s go dancin’ in the light”.
PS: I hope my people back east are getting some relief from the heat.
