I’m not the only one
This is the last day of Daylight Savings Time. Tomorrow morning, sunrise will be at about 6:40 AM instead of 7:40 AM, sunset 5:25 PM instead of 6:25 PM. I really like this time of year, at least in the mornings, because now I don’t have to wait so late for the sun to come up. I can start my walks a bit earlier.

But, what’s even better is that the light is interesting most all of the day. The sun never makes it directly overhead, preferring to travel in a more southernly arc across the sky. For you scientists, I realize that the sun doesn’t move across the sky, but that the earth rotates and is tilted, but you get my meaning. :)

On these days, I can be outside most all day, get interesting shadows, and have the light fall within my sensor’s range to capture it. I also like frost! By 2:00 or 3:00, the sweet hours have hit and the light is great for most any type of shooting. Of course, the downside of it is that by 6:00 PM, it’s dark, but that could work too, if night photography is your thing.

The days will continue to march along, having less and less sunlight until we bottom out on December 21 with sunrise at 7:28 AM and sunset at 5:14 PM, then the march starts the other way. The cycle continues.

Both Hobbs and I like this time of year, the walking is much easier and, as for Hobbs, the napping places are not so hot. It’s good to let a sunbeam caress you while you slumber.
