Iconic sail of the catboat Tigress catches the wind in Edgartown harbor. Tim Johnson

Sunday, September 6, 2020

September on the Vineyard, partaking as it does of both summer and fall, pulls us in two directions at once. For Islanders, there's not a sweeter phrase in the language than "September weather." When the mercury drops five degrees and the dew point plummets thirty, we know that summer is easing its humid grip. Just as the view suddenly opens and extends, haze-free, to the far horizon, we glimpse a future in which the rhythms of working life on the Island will begin to change.

Thank you, you have done it once again, the photographs with my morning coffee, as I cannot be on the island just now, feed my spirit. The photographs are simply stunning.

Who would have thought of capturing the complexity and beauty of a sunflower from the back? Tim is a genius with a camera.
