Good Morning, Maple

This morning, you see my maple tree photographed from a slightly different vantage point. There’s a good reason for that. Plip, plop, drip, drop. Rain.

It’s been a hot, dry summer here in New England. Oh sure, we’ve had the occasional late afternoon thunderstorm, but today is the first genuine rainy day in months. The rain began around noon yesterday and it hasn’t let up.

What that means is that it's a dark, cloudy morning. When I tried to take a photo of the tree through my office window, the flash kept going off, resulting in a burst of light in the foreground and the outline of the window screen in the background. No tree at all.

So this photo is taken out the front door. It isn’t far from the office, but you can still tell that it’s not the same view you’ve been looking at all year long.

This is one rainy day I’m really looking forward to.
