Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Not many leaves left on the Sycamore tree. The soaring turkey vulture is just one of many (I think over 50) that are now roosting in the pine trees between my house and my neighbor’s house every night.

Backyard Autumn Panorama at Dawn.

Contrail, clouds, and silhouettes of trees without leaves early this morning. Composite of eleven images taken with a Nikon Df camera and 28 mm f/1.8 lens. Let me know if you like the version in color with the pastel clouds, or the one converted to B&W.

Moon, Palm Tree Silhouettes, and Orange Contrail Clouds at Sunset.

Another case of “the best camera is the one with you”. I’d never seen contrails lined up like this before with the added bonus of happening just after sunset. View from the Old Northeast section of St. Petersburg, Florida.
