Lovely photos Equil! Are you using a tripod and/or macro lense?

Being near the ocean makes an enormous amount of difference, though. It keeps we coastal plains types a bit warmer in the winter and a bit cooler in the summer (but not cooler by much!). It also brings in weather from the east (off of the ocean) in a way that doesn't often happen further west. And then there are the hurricanes. But that is another thread.

I was thinking that the ocean would factor in it, especially down this way where the gulf stream is right off our coast.

Around here (Chesapeake area), the bay and the ocean give us a later first frost and an earlier last frost than the DC area.

First frost in Michigan is usually by Sept 15th
If you cover things for a few days you can expect almost another month - month and a half of slower growing and ripening of things......

We had our first frost last night, but that is early here. We can go until December, sometimes, without a frost.

I didn't use a tripod or my beanbag. I was kneeling. I got lucky is all.

Default Rhus aromatica - Fragrant Sumac

No frost photos? We had another good frost yesterday morning and this morning. This is one of my favorites, Rhus aromatica - Fragrant Sumac.

Those are nice. We've been having nothing but rain here the last two weeks.
Tonight is the first night I have seen the stars since I watched the meteor shower. Full moon was surrounded in a patchy quilt work of clouds. Gorgeous sight. I would have loved to have gotten a photo of it but I had the camera hooked up to the t.v. showing a slide show to a few guests at the time.

The moon was perfect tonight. I tried to get a few shots but I didn't have my bean bag with me. All my photos were duds.
