Carpe diem

"It's only four o'clock, and it's already getting dark!" a cashier grumbled today. Daylight Saving Time has spoiled her afternoon; no more daylight for her on work days until spring.

So I came home, grabbed the camera, and went out to catch the last bit of light.

4:24, walking towards the light in the sky. Taken with flash, to catch the leaves. And then lightened a bit, ditto.

Heading north

The last light in the west.

And I turned and walked back home, facing east, into the falling dusk.

A Skywatch post.

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!
