Last week the sky seduced me with its kaleidoscopic clouds in a white so striking that it kept redefining shapes. Some were stacked in multiple layers of creamy greys and whites. There seemed to be more cloudscapes than blue. This staggering autumn skyline had a joyous drama, giving the day a cheerful tint.
Colors of the season are appearing in glacial movement, and without a hard
frost trees are muted in quiet hues. But that promise of more is erased by
the temperate temps and warmth of the sun, and the skyline with its own pledge of nature’s artistry.
In the Lens section is my own interpretation of autumn’s possibilities: its flare and
serendipity that can stun our sensibilities. The photomontage merges two images
whose subjects complement each other.
The first image is a twilight sky that would not let me turn away from its technicolor performance. Its pink tones reminded me of the southwest and America’s color country. The second image is a trio of hydrangeas that pushed their way through a metal bulwark, still striving to survive as October closed its marks on our days. The resulting combination is as lively as last week’s sky: full of drama and hope and possibilities.
