When the Golden Hour (see yesterday’s post) begins to fade, there is a shorter period where other pastel shades have their moment. Here are some shots from the same captivating farmscape during the time of the fading gold.

Sandhill Cranes are abundant in our part of Michigan. For a couple of years I have been trying to get a quality shot of a Sandhill. They are very skittish and typically move away when they see you . . . even at distances of a hundred yards or more. These images were taken in a cul-de-sac where someone had left food out for them. They were used to people so I was able to get within about 20 feet. Learn more about Sandhills – including their raucous rasping call – here.

Low contrast days can be difficult for outdoor photography. Our “mostly sunny” forecast turned out to be a cloudy-with-more-clouds morning. Pat and I did get some pictures. A mutual friend let us roam her lakeside property which not only was photogenic, but also very restful.

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the cool nights, the not-too-hot days. and the smells and sounds of the season. Bees are gathering the last few bits of pollen.
Migratory birds, like these geese and sandhill cranes, are gathering together for their journey south.
Of course there are also pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin lattes and pumkins.
