A new photo challenge is available, this one by Cardinal Guzman
I love the changing seasons and my photo will be a simple entry. This is my Chinese Maple tree in my front yard. Boring, huh? The maple still has some desperately clinging leaves.
You can see the fog in the background, typical of Sacramento this time of year. The weather in the Central Valley of Northern California can be dull and gray leading some people to become depressed as a result of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a lack of sunlight needed to help stimulate the pituitary gland.
Here is a preview of what this tree will look like at the height of the season next Fall.
Check out Lucile De Godoy’s blog for another example.
If I lived in San Diego I would have a lot more dynamic photos to share like the one below. No, this has nothing to do with the photo challenge, but I needed a lift 🙂
