There is something about the long, slanted sunlight this season brings - the long shadows, the stark contrasting rays...
...the sky seems blue'er, and there is almost a meloncholic sigh from everything outside.
They are trying to put on a good show!
The bright reds and oranges are brilliant, but these yellows and greens with the bright fall light are my favorite - like they are right out of (or into) a Hopper painting.
Grapes are the finest of the fruit - they are easy, deliver pure sugar, and delight the eyes in every light and season.
Speaking of Edward Hopper - fall is really his season. His use of the fall light is what always grabs me and keeps me.
He painted alot of people, too - but people only swim through the lights... it is buildings and the landscape that grab and hold it.
...and keep it from 'falling'.
