Indian Summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. The US National Weather Service defines this as weather conditions that are sunny and clear with above normal temperatures, occurring late-September to mid-November. It usually is described as occurring after a killing frost.
We have been definitely blessed with an Indian Summer this year. The killing frost(s) came in the third week of September. Since then we have enjoyed days in the mid to high sixties with nights frequently in the high thirties to mid forties. Most days I am able to work in my studio with the door open to the outdoors. And the colors have been fantastic.
One of the longest and most brilliant displays of aspen gold I can remember. So please forgive another week of photographs of them. Yesterday I noticed most of the trees here pictured are now without leaves. And still no snow in our forecast.
The photograph above is one of my favorite because it show the unique sense of light during an Indian summer, and trees from green to gold.
