Autumn is still alive and well here at my house. Though fading, some of the trees have stood steadfast against strong winds and heavy rain in order to share their vibrant colors with us a little longer. I never tire of this view, no matter the season.
And I especially love the time of day I have named "evenglo." It's the time of day when the sun has dipped low on the horizon and the light it casts is strong and mellow. I love it most during the spring and fall because the sun's angle allows the light to fall perfectly on the trees and rose bushes along our fenceline.
We actually get our most beautiful sunsets in the wintertime since the sun dips gently into the river from behind the trees.
Unlike the summertime, when the sun sets across the field after a long days work, the wintertime sun retires early and with a more gentle slipping away each evening. The long shadows she casts seem more determined and vibrant somehow than her summertime alter ego.
Thank you all for your kind words about my friend who is ill, I truly appreciate them. And I hope that each of you has a wonderful week!
