Fall at Last

Maryland reservoir under drought conditions

We have just finished one the hottest summers on record.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has reported “…the June-August summer was the second warmest globally after 1998…” In addition, many areas of the East Coast experienced drought conditions over this same time period (National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) here and here).  So, even with snowmaggedon, the local reservoirs are in bad shape.

Fortunately, with the arrival of autumn, cooler temperatures are becoming the norm.  This means crisp mornings that are perfect for walking.  And while my interest in traditional nature photography has waned over the past couple of years, I still enjoy the look and feel of a fall sunrise.  Given the right circumstances, it feels quite nice to be outside again.  

Take care.
