A great way to note the change of seasons in not the usual and obvious, is to turn your sights towards the skies where you will see a change in position and visibility of some of our perennial constellations and stars, such as Orion’s Belt  (seen to the right of the tree) in this composite timed photograph.

DID YOU KNOW: Orion includes the prominent asterism known as the Belt of Orion: three bright stars in a row. Orion, often referred to as The Hunter, referring to Orion, a hunter in Greek mythology, is a prominent constellation located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world. It is one of the most conspicuous, and one of the most recognizable constellations in the night sky. In it you will find Betelgeuse, a red supergiant star nearing the end of its life. When it explodes it will even be visible during the day. It is the second brightest star in Orion, and is the twelfth brightest star in the night sky.


One of the best things nature often gifts us, rich or poor, rain or shine; is that of a mesmerizing and delightful sunset. A most serene of sights. Nature’s garment of wondrous colors, and accentuated highlights and shadows;  its embedded emotions. A perfect opportunity to reflect on ……the harvest of time.

ALSO: Here’s a time lapse video of a portion of the preserve in my backyard,  photographed recently one late afternoon through dusk.  It took about 730 still photographs to produce this 28 second clip!
