Orange October.

October means low morning light, turning the world orange on sunny mornings.  It also means later sunrises, allowing, ahem, later risers to observe the colour-shifted world.  Even telephone poles become attractive, a bit.
 
And a flicker, whose favourite perch is the top of the pole, becomes gilded,  which is not to say it is a Gilded Flicker.

That was yesterday.  Today presented October's other face.

 Pumpkins in the rain.

We are in the midst of quite a strong weather system, with a very deep low off the coast of Vancouver Island creating massive waves.  Read about it (and check out the cool satellite image) on Cliff Mass' Weather Blog.

Nice flicker photo. We have this lovely low light in the morning now, too--it singes the tops of the trees with orange fire and makes their fall crowns burst into spectacular flame.
