The Autumn Equinox usually falls on the 21st but occasionally, as this year, it’s on the 22nd. For the rest of this year the daylight length becomes ever shorter than that of the lengthening night. The occasional drizzle lasted from when I started out at about 6:30 until about 8:15 when the cloud broke making for more interesting photographic lighting, particularly as everything was wet.
I committed a photographer’s faux pas today by forgetting to bring my tripod. Accordingly I missed a couple of potentially good early morning low light photographs that would have required exposures of several seconds – impossible to hand hold.
