I think it’s safe to say the fall is arriving.
Despite the hot-as-hell days we’ve had this week, it looks like cooler weather is returning. And I like that. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. It’s ripe with photographic possibilities. The days and nights get cooler, but usually not too bad, and it is a time when the air truly smells fresh as can be.
Of course with the onset of fall, that means winter is eventually coming, too.
But, for now, it’s fall.
Football fills up Friday nights and Saturday afternoons at local high schools. The days get shorter, which is one of the things I don’t like about fall. There’s a smell in the air unlike any other season.
Apple orchards are busy with people picking some great varieties of the fruit.
And the fall beers — there are so many good ones. I have some planned that I want to brew soon, though by the time they are ready, the fall will be almost over. I should plan better for them next year, eh?
There also seem to be some great festivals and events, whether related to fall or just because the weather is nicer.
The cooler weather also makes it better for geocaching and hiking, or a couple of rounds of disc golf. Though, to be fair, it can be slightly harder to find your discs when the leaves have fallen, especially if you have discs with autumn colors!
As I mentioned above, I really like the fall for photography. I’m hoping to get to a few state parks this year to try and capture some great images!
Maybe it’s a glass of cider you enjoy in the fall? Or the last few barbecues?
Whatever it is, fall really is quite a wonderful season.
What do you enjoy best in the fall? Let me know in the comments below!
