Had a lovely mid-day amble with fellow photographer and mystic, Michael Eller, in Sebastopol… At our leisurely pace we could see, feel, smell and hear the first hints of autumn’s turn — a murder of crows gathering in a single tree; a magnificent chorus of Redwing Blackbirds trilling at the swamp; dappled sunlight dancing on water through the old oak’s branches. I topped off the afternoon enjoying the blue-gray shimmer of Tamales Bay as the fog rolled in. Nothing like Nature to rebalance our energies.
