The bite of the morning air after the first frost

This morning the rooftops were covered with a think layer of frozen water – a sign that we were visited by the first frost of the season. Autumn bike rides are filled with color and confusion. The heat of the sun beats down and as long as you are at a stand still it could be summer. Get on a bike and the rush of the air bites your skin with the chill left over from the cold nights.

In the Summer the shade provides comfort from the sun. As Fall descends the shadows carry on the work of the air in keeping my body in a deep freeze. The brief moments when the sun breaks through the leaves are momentary blanket warming my skin. These few weeks of transition are a contrast of hot and cold as the two seasons collide in a dance of confusion.
