An evening, later in summer
Didn’ rain, but made a good impression of it.
Sun on the snow. A rare event here.
That small and tiny amount of snow fell—with a nationwide warning three days in advance—and chaos ensued.
As it does every bloody year.
Forest in the evening
The setting sun gave the forest behind my backyard a nice autumnal glow, so I tried it again with my cheap digi-snapper.
