It is officially Fall in the northern hemisphere, in my area here in Sonoma County CA, it has been hot hot hot these past few weeks. I commented to the Ranch camps directors one blazing day this week that “it’s starting to feel like Fall”, she gave me a quizzical look – you see she hails from New England where fall is FALL and is experiencing her first Northern California autumn. But what I know from 19 years in place is that Fall here is not about a chill in the air, although that will come – or a leaf show, although we have our own show as the vines change- it is about the length of shadows and the quality of light. As the days get shorter the shadows get longer. This is a series of photos I took walking the dog just past dawn this week, I couldn’t resist playing with my shadow and welcoming the Fall with a wave and a wag from my dog Lucky.
Happy Fall to all of you my dear readers- if you have time tell us what Fall means where you live!
