Dreaming The Dream Of Autumn

Days shorten, in the air a chill.

Landscape awash in brilliance.

The waters pass on their meandering journey.

To dream the dream of autumn.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

Autumn Hues

A cold wind blows, bringing a chill to the morning air.

Summer’s warmth becomes a pleasant memory as green becomes red and gold. 

The days are crisp, the air is clear, the hillsides dressed in brilliant Autumn Hues.

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?”

My answer.

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.

New Hampshire Night And The Northern Lights.

There was a storm and then there were lights.

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 glad I did.Spending The Night Under Aurora Skies

Coming Soon…

To a book of poetry near you!

White Mountain Poems

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!

The most fulfilling lives are lived through adventure and risk, 

not while watching it pass as a spectator on the sidelines.
