The Autumnal Equinox happened yesterday at 1:02 PM Pacific Daylight Time. I had just returned from Costco with four bags of charcoal (I grill year round, I didn’t want to run out) and a giant rust colored chrysanthemum. Mums say “fall” to me and since the equinox had just occurred, I thought what better time to photograph it than as close to the Equinox as I could get. I was 31 minutes late when I took this shot. The blossom on the mum are so profuse and dense, it looked like a field of flowers through my macro lens.
