We Call It Fall

Morning Frost

Morning Frost

This is the time of year when temperatures swing from near freezing in the morning then rise by mid-afternoon to 75 and short sleeves. We scrap frost off windshields at 6:30 am then have doors open by noon. We call it fall.

Glad I Didn’t Wait

Took this image over a week ago while on campus. The recent winds of last week have blown most of the leaves into eastern Colorado and western Kansas. Glad I didn’t wait.

More Bluer Skies

Starburst on a beautiful fall afternoon.

Starburst on a beautiful fall afternoon.

This pat weekend was lovely. Afternoon temperatures reaching the mid 60’s and nighttime temperatures down to freezing. The cold nights and humidity brought frost to everything in the morning. Saturday morning included some fog where I could not see across the pond. Continue reading »

Yes, Bluer is a Word

Blue Skies over the CSU Soccer Practice Field

Blue Skies over the CSU Soccer Practice Field

I love blue skies! So, after getting off the bus and walking to Morgan Library on Colorado State University campus I had to smile and point my camera to the northern skies. I find this time of the year to be a favorite. We begin to have cooler temperatures making for a better night of sleep and refreshing mornings. And, I think the blue skies are bluer! 🙂

Need to make more mistakes

Last of the season

“If you’re not making mistakes, you might as well hang the camera up.” Joe McNally

Probably one the last flowers we will see this year as the weather changes and fall approaches. Mornings are cooler as we had 43 degrees at 6:30 am. The temperature swing can be large this time of the year as we are expecting a high of 83 degrees this afternoon. Jacket in the morning and short sleeves by afternoon. Probably need to make more mistakes.
