Sometimes, when the clouds threaten rain, the sun doesn't get the memo and keeps right on shining, sneaking underneath the clouds to warm the trees. I love the contrasts in these moments; all dark blue-grey above, yellows and greens below.

Here's the view from our vacant lot, Saturday afternoon.

Looking east, with the sun shining low in the sky behind me.

Alders, weed trees, in early fall colour.

Future forest. At this time of year, it's under a few inches of water. Most of the two-block vacant lot is alder and blackberry bush now; this section is still mixed weeds and baby alders.

Facing west, where there's still a patch of blue sky.

A Skywatch post.

  1. Looks like you might get some rain?! We sure could use a bit down here in California!


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
