To Everything Turn, Turn, Turn

September 18, 2013

in Denver, Wordless Wednesday

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about standing in the exact same spot at the exact same time of day once a quarter. With Colorado’s weather front and center, as well as summer’s shift into fall, now is a good time to think seasons.

Thanks to the 23½  degree tilt of the earth’s axis, during half the year we tilt toward the sun, getting more hours of daylight to warm the earth, and during the other half of the year we tilt away from the sun, getting fewer hours of daylight to warm the earth.

Here are the seasons in my neck of the woods. How about yours?

I love that you do this. I keep thinking I should mimic, and then forget to take the photo :-)

Our weather is cold for this time of year. Really cold. Like wear a jacket cold.

Great seasonal montage!

Beautiful! We don’t have a good vista to photograph… :(


Lori Lavender Luz September 18, 2013 at 8:37 am

I have to shop around for each vista.

And now that this project is finished, I need to find another.

Great idea. I enjoyed sitting for a few minutes and pondering each scene. Lovely!


Kasey September 18, 2013 at 9:14 am

Absolutely beautiful!


Geraldine September 18, 2013 at 9:27 am

How cool is that! :<)

What a cool thing to do! We don’t have much in the way of seasons here in the bay. We have a warmer season and a colder season but the temperature only varies about 30 degrees between them. It doesn’t make for much change. I sometimes think we’re really missing out that we don’t have distinct seasons, but I also love the weather we have so… ;)

What a great idea. I am going to do this too. I am in real estate and it’s a great idea for my clients too.


Justine September 18, 2013 at 2:04 pm

Beautiful! I used to stand in front of the Narragansset in Kennebunk Beach each year and take my picture … it was my favorite building there, where my grandmother lived. I haven’t looked at those in a while …I should find them.

I LOVE having four seasons!


Sheri September 18, 2013 at 2:16 pm

I love it when you post your seasons pictures. It’s a good reminder that we are all surrounded by the changing “seasons” in our lives. Thank you!


Kristen September 18, 2013 at 2:16 pm

I wish we had seasons! We live in CA though, don’t even know what winter is :(


Kristi Campbell September 18, 2013 at 5:45 pm

What a cool idea to take a photo from the same spot during each season!


Haralee September 18, 2013 at 7:55 pm

Great Photos and what a cool thing to do! I love your perspective is so large.


St. Elsewhere September 19, 2013 at 4:21 am

I love these posts from you.

It is crazy hot here. As in 37°C. As in sweaty time hot.


Laura Dennis September 19, 2013 at 6:01 am

Yes! This is a very cool idea :) I’m going to start, as well … Just as soon as my terrace is properly weeded!


Elin Stebbins Waldal September 19, 2013 at 10:51 pm

Love your vista view! Thanks for sharing the seasons! We have trees across from us that I have captured over the four seasons too (and we live in SoCal) it helps my New England roots feel at home to have deciduous trees….no snow…but branches!


It Is What It Is September 21, 2013 at 11:38 am

In So CA, we have nothing in the way of marked seasonal shifts. Things are fairly fluid here. Yes, the days are much shorter than only a month ago and yes gone are our 100+ degree days, and at some point the leaves will turn in the blink of an eye, but it’s fairly flat season-wise.

That is why I LOVE seeing these photos with discernible changes in seasons.

Thanks for sharing.

I love this so hard! I love that you have the discipline to do this every season, every year! love it!


Addison Cooper September 26, 2013 at 2:37 pm

This is so, so cool.


Kathy September 27, 2013 at 7:50 pm

Addison took the words right out of my mouth (or should I say typed them before I could)?! :) I LOVE THIS and like Mel, need to try to remember to try doing this, one of these days, especially since I just got a new (my dream) camera after years of wanting a DSLR! :)
