Walking a dirt and gravel footpath through a forest. The sun is low in the sky directly ahead, shining bright orange rays directly at us through the trees and washing out the sky. Evening shadows are descending upon the forest around it. The forest floor is carpeted with ferns, rocks and occasional fallen branches.

A beagle mix, white with black spots, brown on her face, is lying in the shade beside a lake just starting to doze off. She is on a soft spot covered with grass and evergreen needles atop a large gray rock outcrop. Beside her are the leafy shrubs and saplings providing her shade. Behind her we can see the lake, rippled by a good fresh breeze and speckled with a few lily pads. Its far shore is sun-dappled forest with a large patch of tall water grasses just offshore to our right.

Shredded clouds, New Britain Reservoir, Wolcott, Connecticut. July 6, 2018, 7:27 PM. It's a bit breezy at ground level, but higher in the atmosphere winds are shredding these clouds apart.

#hiking #photography #landscapephotography #hikingadventures #nature #Connecticut #summer #July #forest #clouds #sky #trails #lake #summertime

We are standing atop a small hill, looking over the treetops across a bay of a large lake surrounded by forests. A breeze is creating small waves on the lake surface. The sky is a deep blue with billowing shite clouds. Strong winds at the cloud level are tearing those clouds to shreds, sending wispy streamers far out ahead of the clouds.

Point of land, Scoville Reservoir, Wolcott, Connecticut. September 21, 2021, 10:28 AM. A summery day on the cusp of autumn.

Standing on a point of land a few feet above the spot where a large lake splits into 2 smaller coves. A thicket of small green shrubs grows along the edge, as do the trunks of several pine and hemlock trees. Their fallen needles soften the partially exposed roots and rocks of the ground we stand on. A dense forest surrounds the lake. Banks of clouds cover most of the far horizon. The rest of the sky is a deep blue, mirrored on the lake below.

#hiking #photography #landscapephotography #hikingadventures #nature #Connecticut #summer #July #forest #sunset #sunsets #naturephotography #trails #lake #summertime

On a somewhat sandy and rocky patch of earth, clusters of green grass and wildflowers are backlit by the July evening sun. The sky is a soft blue with a broken line of hazy fair weather clouds near the horizon and another just along the horizon. The sun is a huge formless blob of bright yellow through the haze. We are atop a small rise of land a few dozen feet above a large lake, a bright sliver of which can just be glimpsed over the top of the rise. Other than this patch of open ground and the unseen dam, the rest of the lake is surrounded by forest.

The sky is filled with dark gray storm clouds, but a break just along the horizon is letting gold, yellow, dark orange and red sunset colors through.

We are walking down a dirt and gravel path, a large lake to our right, a forest to our left. Both grassy shoulders of the path slope downward several feet and are overgrown with tall weeds, leafy shrubs and occasional white wildflowers. A wooden bench to our left is almost engulfed. The far shore of the lake is wooded. Although the lake is only gently rippled by a soft breeze, dark and dramatic clouds are streaming past at low levels beneath a high hazy overcast. The rays of the setting sun are breaking through in a few spots, painting some of the clouds orange and gold.

We are standing beside this tree at the edge of a marshy area covered with tall golden brown water grasses along the shore of a pond. A similar marsh abuts the far shore. A shady forest begins where that marsh ends. The pond itself is covered with hundreds of lily pads. The late day sun is casting a soft golden light on much of the scene. The crooked tree and near shore are in shade.

We are alongside the shore of a lake. The flat ground in front of us is covered with small bright green leady shoots speckled with hundreds of little yellow flowers. Several dark gray boulders rise above this low ground cover in the foreground. The far lakeshore has a wide strip of these plants, which resemble grass from a distance. Beyond that strip, a low wooded ridge rises. The sun is low in the sky not far above that ridge, partially burning through the haze and looking enormous. The sky is a swirl of thin clouds and haze around the sun, tinted pale orange and gold. The sky and far shore are mirrored on the dead clam lake surface.

Define "incapable of reform":

Yet the system is unable to do even this tiny little thing.

That doesn't bode well for any climate goals, does it?

Tonight the clocks go forward an hour in the UK.

For most this means longer days and winter being over (allegedly).

For developers, it's a game of timezone roulette. Is the app you built in the 6 months where local = UTC going to work correctly tomorrow?

Good luck everyone!
