Shadows and Light, 2011

building and trees in mist and sun

Shadows and Light

Just the right amount of mist just after sunrise is enough to enhance the reds in the oaks and maples surrounding Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. This is actually the view from one of the back windows of my house.

Misty Summer Sunrise

This was the view this morning; as the sun rose the mist rose with it. In mid-August, a few surprising cool nights.

This reminds me of two little sketches I’ve done through the years of similar misty summer mornings, below, when the trees were younger. In the photo above you can see the spruce at right, in the first sketch below it is one of a pair, on the left. In the bottom one, the mulberry in the center and the hemlock on the left are nowhere near as big as they are now. Only the mulberry is in my yard, but I still think I’ll give it a trim.

Red Dawn, 2011

Red Dawn

Even though a sunny day was forecast, I knew a storm was coming because the dawn was blood red, almost shocking when the light hit my window.

Red sky at night, sailor’s delight;
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.

Or farmers or anyone whose livelihood depends on the weather.

I missed the absolute sunrise just in the time it took me to get my camera and get upstairs to the bathroom window where I have this view.

Early Dawn

Truly stunning, showing through the trees, the first light was vivid red. I thought for sure it meant it would rain today, but just a welcome overcast and cool.

Dawn, Through the Trees

Dawn Light

The dawn light flickers through the trees into my northeast window as the sun rose on yesterday’s red dawn.
