Hues of orange and rust on the horizon, reflected in the soon-to-be dormant meadow. November falls gently like the burnt edges of an old letter or the faded corners of a favorite paperback. The subtle beauty of the twilight time of the year is often overlooked in anticipation of the busyness of the holiday season. But I always notice. I connect easy with fading light through bare branches and the early nighttime call of the few remaining crickets. One season's farewell before the sudden snap of that first snowfall. This is where eyes wander in the glow of distancing light and the heart is warmed near the hearth fires of memory and love and hope.

Welcoming October in Ohio. The season of near-perfect light with am array of subjects in beautiful settings. This is my time of year! The following series of images were captured at Sugarcreek MetroPark, just southeast of Dayton, with the exception of the fully eclipsed Moon, which was captured from Kettering.

By mid-summer conditions in Hocking Hills State Park (Ohio) can be dry with hot, bright sun. Not the best for nature and landscape photography. But a short visit there earlier this week, with my daughter Chloe, proved that you should never eliminate opportunities based on what you think conditions will be based on past visits and experiences. The shooting conditions were ideal. In fact I'd say the conditions were just as good as some of my best days shooting in spring and fall.
