Natural rhythms were interrupted by unusually warm, dry and erratic weather patterns

    • Thanks Alison. October scenes are so rich and interesting. I struggled to select a limited number of special images and had to settle on a stream of consciousness strategy. 🙂

    • Glad you liked it and I’m happy to hear that the flight shot caught your eye. My first impression wasn’t all that good but it seemed to improve a lot with fresh eyes and a good night’s sleep!

  1. I like your stream of consciousness very much. That last one is a unique abstract to cap it off. Very nice sequence. So sorry to hear of the “Tech Support Purgatory”! 😦
