Photo of the Day: First Sunset After Daylight Saving Time Change

Somehow I wish the period from the start of fall to now could be lengthened. By the fall equinox, in my area of the Northeast, the worst heat and humidity of summer have abated, so it’s comfortable for one of my favorite activities, walking.

It all changes when the clocks are turned back an hour, as they were this weekend. From this point on, there are few hours to take advantage of the waning sunlight—a difficulty for those of us on a more-or-less 9-to-5 schedule.

It can be mid-afternoon, with the sun burning brightly, and before you know it it’s time to turn on the headlights as you follow the line of cars heading home—as happened to me yesterday, shortly after I snapped this picture of sunlight in Overpeck County Park, not far from where I live in Bergen County, NJ.
