Downtown Twilight and Kissed by the Autumn Sun

image of sunset over urban parking lotSeptember. Early autumn. The light is fantastic at this time of year. And the sunsets seem to be so much more dramatic.

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.
