Goodbye to Summer

The autumnal equinox occurs tomorrow morning at 5:04AM (9/23/2011 at 9:04 GMT) to astronomically end summer. Thought I would wave goodbye on this last day of summer with a scene I photographed back in July.

A young couple gets unexpectedly splashed by waves while watching the sunset from the Lake Ontario shoreline near Oswego, New York.

This young couple was watching the sunset from the rocky shore of Lake Ontario near Oswego, New York when a larger than expected wave came ashore causing the girl to embrace her date in laughter.  Could this have the makings for a Nicholas Sparks novel about summer love?

  1. What?? I think you’re a day early? I just checked three calendars, and all three say that the equinox is tomorrow (Sept. 23)

    We said good bye to summer on Sunday when we officially closed the pool. I’m still in mourning. 😉

    Well, as photographers, aren’t we all voyeurs? 😀
