Into the blue / by Mario Mirabile

Early autumn is my favourite time of year.  Even though March has been unusually warm and humid, the weather - at least for a week or two - managed to right itself and deliver what was expected. The mornings have been crisp, the days warm and the evenings balmy. The sky has a special saturation not seen in the harsh light of high summer or the dreary days of winter, and even in the middle of the day the light seems gentle. Calm winds allow interesting high level cloud patterns to form and linger. 

Unfortunately, this idyllic period appears to have already passed, with rain and storms now the order of the day. But it was good while it lasted.
