I love the long days of summer, the evening light is perfect for some great photography.
Fall enters and the cooler temperatures change everything.
My Hydrangea is still beautiful, I appreciate the different hue it takes on in its Fall dress. I can still take photos in the evening..but I am back home by 8PM.
Then it gets colder and darker.
We get some frost..I can still see some beauty in the Hydrangea blooms..a frosty beauty. Staying out till 7PM is still possible if the sun is shining.
Then it happens Daylight Saving Time drops us into the dark depths of winter..now I must go out in the afternoon to photograph anything..and if it is cloudy by 4PM I am done.
As the Hydrangea progresses so does my overall mood. I get a tad crankier. My good moods are few and far between. I think they are stuck in the snow bank just like the Hydrangea.
Forget winter.. how many days till spring?
