August, please slow up!

There's a feel of fall in the air with the morning temps in the low 50's.  The wet dew and crisp breeze greet me and the pups as they scurry out for their first pee break of the day.  Brrrrrr.....

Oh, I am so not ready for summer to end.


We had a remarkable double rainbow arch itself across our harbor the other day.  
There was a light sprinkle happening as the sun burst through the clouds.


It was just stunning!

I've been trying to take my camera out a bit more 
to capture all the beauty that
presents itself daily.


I could forever just photograph boats and dinghies.
Each one has its own character and flaws.
Like the one below. 

The oars remind me of the stockings
on the Wicked Witch of the West 
in the Wizard of Oz.


There are dinghies 
that are so well cared for .....


and others that look lost and homeless.


I find each boat full of charisma and character.
It's endless.

I could photograph them all day long!


Oh, August.  Please slow down.
I'm not ready for fall's arrival!

That is indeed an awesome rainbow! And what superb captures for the day, Reena!! I love boats, too, and always enjoy your photos of them. Thanks for sharing these! It's been quite warm this summer in Portland, but there is that faint chill early in the morning that announces the approach of Fall! Have a great week!!

What beautiful photographs these are, Reena!
Our mornings have been in the mid 40s lately.
As a matter of fact, we've had a nice summer, but the temps have been well below normal. :-(

I'm not ready for fall either!

I so agree with you!! August is just going by way too fast!!

Oh, I love that rainbow. You so seldom get to see a complete rainbow and to be able to capture it is remarkable.

There is beauty everywhere, even in boats and dinghies! I adore the double rainbow, though - it really IS stunning!

Rose L said...

The 4th and 5th photos (of the boats) are fantastic, especially the fifth with the reflection and the design it creates!!! Wonderful rainbows and so lucky to have caught them.

Fall seems to be arriving earlier than usual this year...

Barb said...

I think I like the scuffed and dinged ones best! In some of your photos, I can see to forever. It's turning cold here in the mountains, too - fall is just rounding the bend.

Pat Tillett said...

Fall already? That is just too soon. It is still summer here
BEAUTIFUL photos!

Great shots Reena! It's been a bit since I've been able to check your site. I love your first shot of the boats. The movement you captured in the sky is amazing! Well done! You have so much talent!
