365: Day 1 – At Summer’s End

30 08 2011

Hello everyone! First, I want to apologize for not posting any pictures up this past week. It was a pretty crazy scene, with Hurricane Irene and all. In between work and preparing for the hurricane, I never had time to get out and get some shots. Although we weren’t badly hit, the preparation alone consumed all my time.

So…I’m changing my photo blog up a bit. I decided that I want to do a 365 project. For those that don’t know what that is, a 365 project is an adventure where the photographer takes and posts one (or more) photo a day for an entire year. I figured that doing this would allow me to devote some of my time every day to photography – even if it’s only a few minutes a day.

Well, here’s day 1:

EXIF Data: Sony A350 - f/11 - 1/320 sec - ISO 100 - 50mm - Handheld, No Flash

New Englanders don’t need a groundhog to tell us the length of summer or when it’s coming. We can sense those things. For instance, when the end of summer is here, we can tell simply by looking outside. The trees are at full blossom, the sky is as blue as can be and the temperature of the river water feels perfect when you go for a swim. A perfect sunny day signifies summer at it’s prime – and it’s all downhill from here. Soon, the leaves will fall off the trees and snow will cover the roads.

This photo was taken on a nice calm day along the Connecticut River – Pre – Hurricane Irene, of course.
