My favorite autumn day is one where the air is cool and crisp, the Santa Ana’s have blown the clouds into strips across the sky, and the sun sets in a flash of color across the horizon, asserting one last hurrah before the close of the day.
Determined to take advantage of the great autumn weather, Wes and I embarked on a bike ride yesterday just as the sun was setting. There was a lot of "We’re not going to make it to the top of the hill before the sun sets", and replies such as "I did not lug this camera on my back, up this damn hill for nothing. We’re going to the top!"
Maybe we didn’t make it before the sun set, but catching the last few rays of light as they lingered over the rolling hills made it worth it.
