late summer tidbits

September 18, 2016  •  3 Comments

With a low temperature of 36 degrees fahrenheit this morning, September 18, skim ice sat on the water in one of the bird baths.  Just an inkling that summer is about to take a bow and exit, allowing autumn to enter the stage.  But wildflowers still abound, making this transition period all the more sweet. Here are a few "late summer tidbits".

This old-timer, whether a lumberjack or prospector, has his own sunflower patch at Olguin's just west of Taos on highway 64.

Everywhere you turn this year, the purple asters appear at your feet, or on an adobe wall.

And the variability of the weather provides a clue that nature is in flux, but nonetheless still offering photographic subjects.  Almost a double rainbow...

Oh, Steve. So glad you love the black and white sunflowers. Now what could you possibly be doing in the Paso Robles vicinity besides consuming large quantities of fine wine? Color me jealous, but on the other hand, hoping for some coastal fog for divine photographs! Wish we were there. Bet TTT below would also like to be there...

Bring home some Turley for our eventual celebration of everything!

Wow do I love the black and white Sunflowers. All are great but that sucker knocks my socks off. This, by the way, comes to you from the hazy skies but amazing wines of Paso Robles. Wish you and Fred were here. Turley and Peachy Canyon today. Austin Hope and Tablas Creek tomorrow. And, yes, there was coastal fog today. Fingers crossed for some good stuff.
Tractor is extra special!!!! nice catch - getting the dew drops on the aster. Rainbow is spectacular.
