The autumnal equinox was on September 22 and it marked the beginning of fall for the Northern Hemisphere. It's a notable occasion for shooting cityscapes because, on the day of an equinox, the sun rises and sets along the path of the equator. When you have a street like H Street in Washington, D.C., which runs directly east and west, the sun rises and sets at the ends of the street. I think that makes for neat cityscapes.

I took these photos last week. We had clear skies, warm temperatures, and some haze from the large forest fires way over on the West Coast. It's amazing that the fires were so large that they affected the atmospheric conditions here on the East Coast.
