Autumnal Equinox, first day of Fall, 2015.

Via Old Farmers Almanac

Fall begins on September 23, early in the morning at 4:21 A.M. The autumnal equinox is when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south. (The celestial equator is the circle in the celestial sphere halfway between the celestial poles. It can be thought of as the plane of Earth’s equator projected out onto the sphere.)

The word equinox means “equal night”; night and day are about the same length of time. This occurs two times each year: Vernal in late March and Autumnal in late September.

In addition to the (approximately) equal hours of daylight and darkness, the equinoxes are times when the Sun’s apparent motion undergoes the most rapid change. Around the time of the equinoxes, variations in the position on the horizon where the Sun rises and sets can be noticed from one day to the next by alert observers.

From here on out, the temperatures begin to drop and the days start to get shorter than the nights (i.e., hours of daylight decline).

Spring, Flowers and Ducks.

Spring 2015 is taking its time arriving to my South Jersey area unfortunately.

I took a walk down the Lake near my condo. My camera was in tow to see what was interesting.

I found sleepy ducks on land and some in the water.  I tried to lure them with my corn maze but it appeared the ducks were not very hungry.  I saw the colorful males but no females.  The Canadian geese were floating in the distant.

There wasn’t any foliage present yet, just some buds on the trees I observed.

Then, I found two trees that were trying to bloom.

I am still trying to learn to use my camera.  There are so many features on it to enhance an amateur photographer as myself.
