The sun, that tantalizing old tease, is peeking in and out a bit today, while the wind asks me if I really, really, really want to take some macro shots while its buddy is shining.....after what feels like weeks of gloom and doom...Well, yes I do, but it sure doesn't want me to.



Everything is bobbing and jiving to the rhythm of its breath and all the best shots are blurs. It's cold enough to make you want to head indoors, but it's hard to leave the light. Even the prosaic old box elders are silvered by the passing light, and look plumb valuable up there in the breeze.

Seems like November leapt the fence this year and galloped all over October. We haven't seen the sun in quite a while.


So even though this isn't really a nice day, after recent weeks it looks pretty good.


And it IS an invigorating breeze.....

That wind sure is chilly today. Not enough of the sun is peeking out here at all. Stay warm.

Sun? You got sun? Still overcast and cloudy AND we got another dusting of snow overnight. Still in the mid-30s with a breeze making it feel colder.

Living at 2100 feet in PA's Northern Tier has it's pluses (great view) but it also means I get the snow while the valley gets a drizzle. *sigh*

I'm so not ready for this.

" . . it's hard to leave the light."

Poetry is a life truth . . caught on a heart's retina . . . and shared.

That sentence . . .

. . . so much said and so yet so much more.

And then there's imagery. I LOVE this:
"Seems like November leapt the fence this year and galloped all over October." :-D

Lisa, got so cold so fast and now it's November so we are all done with good weather

Joated, me either...we are having a little sun, but it's so cold and windy!

Cathy, thanks, I feel cheated out of Indian Summer
