Tonight is “Exhibit A” as to why this is my favorite time of the year. The fairly warm wind, the crispness of the air and the rustle of the leaves all lend to a magic vibe. The moderately clear sky tonight also helps perpetuate that vibe.

What a gorgeous night.

I just took a photo of the moon with my real camera, a Canon EOS Rebel XS. The photo was taken without a tripod. I don’t think it came out too shabby. It’s not what I would consider “Cub Quality” but not bad for a guy that doesn’t know what he’s doing.
