In Which I View the Morning September Sky

OK, I know I’ve done a sky post before—but enjoying the changing light of morning (or late afternoon) is one of the perks of being a biker. I know you car pilots see the same sky, but not as clearly or fully as I do, so there.

The first four photos are from the weekend, last Sunday, Sept. 11. I know it’s a sad day, and I haven’t and won’t ever forget, but there was a cool early fall misty, dewy morning as I rode my bike on the Lindale and Boyson trails.

Morning dew gleams in grass near west entrance of Lindale Trail in Cedar Rapids.

Lindale Trail--shafts of misty sunlight.

Don't panic, citizens. Orb web gleams beside Lindale Trail--no spider in view.

Boyson Trail creek view. Day is slowly warming up and mist clearing.

The next are from today, Sept. 14—partly cloudy sky around 8 a.m. just looks pretty to me, with sun playing peekaboo behind the cloud cover. And it’s amazing how low in the sky the sun is at 8 a.m. in mid September!

Looking east at corner of F Avenue and Collins Road as I wait for light to change.

Looking east across lawn of Kenwood School.

Winter is coming. But Clarence and I are ready!
