skywatch over track and field


please click on photo to see much greater details


walking through my neighborhood on a very cold Autumn late afternoon, the sun was starting to go down when I noticed these clouds floating above a group of buildings across the middle school's track and field. I noticed the sun seemed to shine only in the background of this scene while the foreground had a shadow over it. the light made me ponder how different the sky is this time of year. the days are shorter and before you are ready for it, the daylight hours come to a quick end and it's suddenly dark out. according to sunrisesunset.com, on this very day we only have nine and a half hours of daylight in new york. I don't know if I ever get used to such short days.

Those clouds are lovely. And there is a rather strange quality to the light.

I agree about the days length around here. Its a little depressing to me since I spend most of my life outside.

The picture is great. Very nice lighting effect.

Shorter days do lovely things to the clouds but I agree, it's difficult to like the shorter daylight hours.

BTW I agree with you about Fanny and Alexander - one of my very favourite films!
