Autumn sunrise

The sun is not yet at its lowest point of the year, but it's getting there. Right now the sun rises to the south of due east. It's a long and low sunrise. The light is horizontal for a long time and the high point is not very high at mid-day. These trees (which are a common sight on this blog) seemed to glow orange-red in the morning sun this past weekend.

Sunrise in the vineyard on Saturday, 19 October 2013.

You will be pleased to know that I got the grass cut on Monday. All of it. At least one, if not two, of our neighbors was also out cutting his grass. Like I said, you've got to make hay while the sun shines. Depending on the weather, I may need to cut the grass one more time this year. We'll see. Last year's final cut was on November 8. In 2011, I cut it on November 21. Yes, I keep records.


  1. Beautiful photo Walt....the sun shines a with a more orangey glow here for us around this time of the year too.
    Loved your "Things are looking up" photo a few days ago too.

  2. I love that you used the 'making hay" expression almost literally.

    (Should I call you Rainman instead of Walt the Fourth?)

  3. virginiac, thanks!

    judy, nerd central. Now I need to watch some Star Trek. ;)

    mitch, lol

  4. I thought they were kind of reddish, but then I thought it was just because I'm color-blind and sometimes green looks red to me.


Tell me what you think!
