Fall Light


No matter what the temperature, you can certainly tell it's fall by the light.  The sun is lower in the sky, doesn't show its face before 8:00 am and goes to bed early too.  In a week when daylight savings time ends, it will shift even further.

Saturday was one of those typically crazy days weatherwise in Paris.  Sun one minute, dark clouds the next, a rain shower and then a clearing.  I took this picture on the footbridge over the Seine near the Musee Quai Branly.  I loved the look of the clouds but the sun was so blinding, I couldn't tell whether the shot would work or not.  And since it did, dear reader, it's all yours.

Love the way the light shines through the clouds and all the resulting colors that you caught. La Tour looks so regal in this photo.

Anne!
What a great photo. I've been following your blog and have been recommending to anyone who would listen. A question - what camera are you using? All of your photos are really, really good.

Anne said...

Thanks all.

Fatz: I use a Canon Powershot 720. It has more zoom than the smaller point and shoots, and so it's a bit bigger than them but it still fits in my bag easily. I carry it with me everywhere.

Thanks for the info, Anne! I'll check it out on Amazon. Cheers, Fatz (Fatima from TCWF)

Hey Fatima! Thanks for identifying yourself; I never would have guessed that was you. Hope all's well with the crew at TCWF -- please say hi to everyone for me.
