Days are shorter, and sunlight often seems cooler and weaker, as fall begins a slow turn toward winter. I grind my teeth a bit at the shortened time to photograph and at the cold hands. It’s not as if there’s suddenly less to photograph, but it takes effort for me to shift to photographing in cool and cold weather.
This week’s images are an effort to come to terms. They are of a familiar spot for me, the Thornapple River near the dam in Ada Village. There was some sun through the filmy cloud cover, so Ada seemed like a good place to go. I thought the light might be interesting over the water and the clouds had potential.
My favor image from my walk perhaps is the shadows and reflections of a tree on the brick and windows of the old church, now a community assembly hall in Ada. It’s not spectacular like sunlight over water, but more interesting as a play of light and shadow and reflection.
