Light please…

This time of year, in the Pacific NW, gets darker and blah if you don’t make an effort to get out and take in some form of light. I wouldn’t have done well cooped up in a cabin, snow bound, months on end….’stir crazy’ comes to mind.

vintage rose….

“They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.”

Sunrise….Sunglasses?

photography-blinding sun-KMuncy-SwittersBAfter months of basic grey mornings, the rain soaked clouds part near Portland for a very bright, sunshine morning. It immediately lifts the spirits…making me wonder if I suffer from some Seasonally Affected Disorder (SAD)…otherwise known as FINS (F#%@ I Need Sunshine). You can pick your own expletive deleted: SINS, DINS, HINS, FMINS

Light Deprivation & Transition into Winter…Ugh

SwittersB

This is a difficult time of year for me. My mind is still awash with Summer and warmth and a sense of health. Fall closes in and darkness ensues and I realize I would have been a terrible cave dweller.  I wasn’t done enjoying the warmth, light and energy of longer days. I certainly wasn’t done fondling fish!

It’s right there before me…sort out the Winter gear. Start planning those Winter steelheading trips. Solitude, maybe sunny crisp days and hammer smashed fingers? Ice in the guides? I think not. Been there, done that.

Money is ever tighter and shrinking. Less travel toward warmth…maybe next year. So, what will I do to muddle through Winter? The holidays will be fine, but their passage seems to create an even starker contrast. I will just plan trips for next year, venture forth into the cold for a few trips for Steelhead and maybe Trout. Tie and tie, photographing my efforts and maybe at some point really improve my macro efforts. I think I will explore more with the camera and see what I can find out there to capture. Perhaps the pioneer cemetery explorations are in order now.

The state of my mind this time of year………..fuzzy recollections

Basic grey days of the Pacific NW cloud my mind. It is only November! What a whiner. OK, I feel better already…a plan of action to endure Seasonally Affected Disorder.
