Fall is truly here. The forecast for today was partly sunny, but the part that was sunny was pretty much all above a thick cover of dripping clouds. It’s this sort of reliability that lets you know summer has truly given up. I spent the morning at the Visitors’ Center, working on a large painting of Newhalem Creek Falls.
Later in the day, I slogged through dripping bushes to photograph some more tumbling creeks. Then escaped to the car to find a spot to paint.
I have been eyeing the cliffs by Newhalem for some time. Every day the grasses get more golden, the leaves more red. Today I parked in the fog and painted a tree atop a cliff with golden grasses and the clouds behind it. A little salute to fall.
