September. Early autumn. The light is fantastic at this time of year. And the sunsets seem to be so much more dramatic.
Maybe it’s because they happen earlier so I’m more likely to catch them in full glory. (The Villa Auto Wash never looked so good.)
Maybe it’s the cooling air that makes the warm colours seem that much warmer.
The quality of light in September can’t be beat.
It’s hard to take a bad photo. The sun seems to perpetually be at exactly the right angle.
Even the dust kicking up from the combine in the distance looks beautiful.
The whole landscape is sun kissed.
Maybe it’s the farewell kiss of a sun heading south for the winter. The last warm kisses before the freeze. A promise that warm kisses will return in spring.
If you have even a passing interest in photography this is the time of year to get out and do it. Grab your camera on a late afternoon and go for a walk. I can pretty much guarantee you’ll be happy with what you get.
