Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

I woke up early after returning from a week of photography in Lisbon, Portugal. Last night there was an intense orange glow at sunset, and I was hoping for the same at sunrise. I set up a Nikon D850 camera and 8-15 mm fisheye lens to capture images for a dawn sky time-lapse video. Unfortunately, the light was not as extreme. After it warmed up a bit, I recorded mowing the lawn and harvesting the remaining vegetables from the patio garden with a Garmin VIRB-360 camera. Even though the temperatures went below freezing at least once last week while I was in Portugal, there were orange bell  peppers, red-hot peppers, green tomatoes, onions, carrots, and Swiss chard in the garden. All that remain are some hot peppers that are still green. I used much of what I harvested along with some Garbanzo beans, roasted tomatoes, and olives to make a hearty vegetable stew in an Instant Pot.
