I woke up the morning of October first and this is what it was doing outside:
Honest to God, these photos were taken with my point and shoot and no filter at all. The air was red.
I forgot to set the camera's flash to "off" which turned out to be a good thing. Those white dots you see are rain drops that the flash caught. When I tried to take a picture without the flash the camera overcompensated for the lack of light and the photos weren't as accurate a depiction as these were.
I'd been meaning to post these shots for quite a while. You might have noticed, though, that I haven't been taking much time to post lately. Be prepared to see some old garden shots in the next coming weeks. Filler!
