For much of the past two weeks, the sky has looked like this.
That being said, under the sky it's much brighter.
Some of the brightness is subdued at times.
Raindrops collecting on pines add their own bit of light.
In addition to enjoying the colours of the Sugar Maple in the 2nd photo, I also liked the Butter-and-eggs wild flowers dotted about the field. In spite of the late season and cool temperatures, we found 115 species of wild flowers in bloom last week. Have a look here for the list and some other photos.
