Nighttime photography is fun and frustrating. A tripod is an absolute necessity. If not a tripod then a sturdy wall. The first photo of hotels at Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan used the latter method.
The next two are peacocks near Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. They knew I was impressed. Just check out those expressions.
Autumn is a lovely time in D.C. The leaves change much later than in New England. These are from sunrise this morning. The first shows fog lifting from the Potomac with the Washington Monument (still closed) in the distance.
And finally the trees in the small lawn in front of the Jesuit Residence. Over twenty years ago I bought mom six of the red bushes called burning bushes. The turn a spectacular crimson color as the weather turns cold. These things can grow to tremendous size if not trimmed.
Will be in Plymouth over the weekend. Another homily in the offing and perhaps some photos.
