The Companion To October Light

Faulkner’s Light In August is a great title, because it calls out the subtle change in color temperature suffusing the hot air of a dying summer.  But we’ve always loved the title to John Gardner’s late phase novel, October Light.  Is there anything more gorgeous than the yellow light of October?  But October is not uniformly sunny.  October rain is October light’s sullen, destructive companion. This is what October too often looks like here in the U.S.    This is what it looks like today.    Leica M9, Noctilux.

Rainy October
