Our October days have been alternating between warm and sunny with crisp nights or cool and rainy. Today was a golden day with a clear blue sky. As I was driving home from the studio, I felt my heart sing as I passed glorious huge maple trees ablaze in all the shades of yellow, gold and amber, contrasting with the ever present evergreens of the West Coast. I was reminded of a recent article about Vancouver's Midas touch in autumn. How I wished I'd had the camera with me to catch the light glimmering behind those brilliant trees.
A bit of that mood returned late this afternoon when the sun shone into my office and briefly danced its golden light and shadows on the closet wall and on my desk. This time I had the camera handy to catch that ephemeral moment in time.
