The First Photos of Autumn

September Sunset 
9/22 Photograph Goodbye
Farewell / Final / Seasons Changing

I hurried over to the Merrimack River hoping to get a shot of the sun setting with light reflecting off the capital, but I missed it. What little light there was had left by the time I got to the spot, there was not much of a sunset to be seen. This shot above is from my first sail at the beginning of September. It is a good representation of the seasons changing as this was taken after Labor Day and there are no other boats on the lake.

What I am Trying to Watch
9/23 Photograph Who
This One / That One / Which

The instructions for this prompt was to take a picture of a television screen. Who are you watching? Modern Family is one of my favorite shows, it's ridiculous with a good ensemble, just a fun show. I had not caught the first season and started watching after it started winning Emmys. I wanted to see what it was all about. Now I just watch rerun after rerun and was looking forward to new season, I was not disappointed last night. 
1% Milk- Getting my Calcium
9/24 Photograph The Number One
Prize / On a Sign / First

This prompt was a tough one trying to find the number one. When I add my snack in the afternoon, I noticed the #1 on the milk and I set up the shot. I used the macro lens at a higher aperture to get more detail. Back to counting calories and logging on MyFitnessPal which means I get to my nutritional values for the day. Calcium is lacking and besides a multivitamin pill, I try to get a glass of milk in during the day. 

 Morning Lake Mist
9/25 Photograph Morning Light
Dawn / Daybreak / Sunrise

Today was my annual foliage ride up to the White Mountains with my friend T where we take foliage pictures and then go over to my aunt's cottage in Maine. We help her put away the outdoor furniture and then enjoy lunch. Before I even saw the prompt for today, I had asked T to come over early to get an early start to our drive and to perhaps get some early morning shots on our ride. There were no daybreak shots because it was foggy in our part of the state.

We hit the jackpot when we got to Lake Chocura where the mountain was rising above the mist with the reflections on the water of the sky, mountain and foliage. We had to take quick shots because the mist was burning off.

Turned out to be a perfect picture for the day and we got a bunch of great shots. Since we went up a week earlier than we have gone up in the past, the foliage wasn't very good. Although on the west side of the Kancamagus highway, we did stop to get a couple of foliage shots that had some pop to it. Nothing like last year though, but at least this year's photo field trip will be remembered for the morning mist shots.
