Summer Sunset on the Pond

Pond_sunset_Pin

Yesterday I could feel it happening. The sunset is getting earlier, the algae is in full bloom and the nights have cooled down just a few degrees. Summer is still hanging on and we may even get a few sweltering days but I can feel fall just around the corner. Zeroimage pinhole camera and Kodak Film.

The Calm Before

Calm before the storm

Calm water and a funky sky hours before a major storm blew through. Rain and wind all night had us holding onto the tent poles to prevent a collapse. A little vinegar in the stew makes it just a bit more flavorful. Angmagssalik fjord, Greenland.

On a Sunless Summer Day

While camped at the meadows edge I look into a forest half dead.

The beetles’ have had their way.

The clouds got thicker and a late afternoon shower moved in from behind.

The rain came and the skies cleared but the pines in this forest will take longer to return if they do at all.

Ecosystems are dying or being destroyed around the around the globe.

From the polar regions to the tropical jungles to the coral reefs and the grasslands in-between.

We know this to be true.

Yes, there is untold beauty all around, but it’s becoming harder to see when looking into natures mirror on a sunless summer day.
