Wednesday’s Photos

Last Day  of the Indian Summer (November 10th)

It was the day before Remembrance Day. The Americans call it Veterans’ Day. When my wife and I stepped out of our home, we were greeted by the brilliant morning light and the sun felt warm in spite of the crisp air that had cooled down to almost freezing during the night. So we grabbed our cameras and went down to the boat dock and golf course, our favourite spots, to go for an exploratory photo session. This week and the next, I will showcase the photos I took in that glorious morning light. Enjoy.

      So it is. In photography it is also true that the early bird catches the worm. Thank you for your kind comment, Deeksha!

        I agree with you Peter. I am not a photographer, but still for my food photographs I try to click in morning sunshine and it makes a whole lot of difference!!

    Brilliant pictures. Sun shines in the pictures. It’s hard to pick the best but if I have to, my favorites are second and the last one.

      There is beauty everywhere. I believe it is the photographer’s mission to discover it, just like what you are doing in NZ. Thank you, Su!

    I love the photos. I must admit that my favourite is the one with the relief-like ferns. It is very special (are they ferns?).

      Here is my little secret you must have discovered. I place the one that is best in my judgment last. Thank you for the kind comment!

    You’ve captured the crispness and color of fall so beautifully, Peter. Do you ever try to show your photos in a gallery?

      No, I haven’t tried it. But thanks for the honour of you thinking my pictures worthy to be included in a gallery, AmY!

        Absolutely! You should try—if it’s something you’d be interested in pursuing.

    They’re all lovely, but the next-to-last is my favorite. We flatlanders do love a beautiful mountain, especially with such nice accompanying scenery.

      This mountain does not compare with the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, but still is remarkable how it beautifully fits into the landscape.

    Amazing pictures. The second one almost looks 3D. Intrigued by the term “Indian Summer.” What is the reference to ?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Peter Klopp · November 26

      Obviously, the term has nothing to do with India. When the early exploerers landed in North America, they thought they landed in the Far East and called the native people Indians. The term Indian summer describes the period in the fall, when we get a long period of sunny weather that often lasts into the beginning of Novenber. I hope this makes any sense to you. Best wishes! Peter

    I think we saw some of those little red fruits when we were in your part of the world but I can’t remember what they are.
