Again, today, I'm fixated with the light. This time of year has very tricky lighting. The shadows seem darker and the sun seems unable to reach more areas of the landscape. A cloud passing over darkens the landscape much more than a few months ago. These photos were taken within a couple of hours and yet the sky, the colors, the shadows- they are all very different. I wonder how long I will be able to escape the confines of my apartment in order to "shoot" outside. I'm not looking forward to the days of shooting still life inside. "Mother nature, if you hear me, please let Global Warming affect upstate NY!!"---relax, I'm just joking!! I love the environment!
