Days shorten, in the air a chill.
Landscape awash in brilliance.
The waters pass on their meandering journey.
To dream the dream of autumn.

The question posed on the Daily Post,
“Changing colors, dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes: do these mainstays of Fall fill your heart with warmth — or with dread?”
Warmth, anticipation, excitement, and joy.
Autumn is the most beautiful season. The awakenings of Spring and the comforting warmth and long days of Summer pale in comparison to Fall as the land adorns itself in its colorful best one last time before Winter’s sleep falls across the landscape.
Last Thursday and again on Friday, September 11th and 12th, the sun sent a blast of energy our way in the form of a coronal mass ejection, or CME. While these strong magnetic storms can cause problems for electrical grids, GPS, and radios, what interested me, and just about every other photographer I know, was the light show.
You see these potentially damaging solar storms are also what gives us the Aurora Borealis. otherwise known as the Northern Lights. While much of my photography takes place during daylight hours, the reported potential intensity of the Aurora, and the fact we don’t usually see the Aurora this far south, had me grabbing my camera and heading for the mountains.
I’m quite pleased to announce that the book “White Mountain Poems,” by New Hampshire author Jeffrey Zygmont, will be hitting the shelves very soon. Along with the photographs from three of New Hampshire’s most talented photographers, will be nine of my images, including the one you see on the cover.
Very exciting indeed!
