Friday’s in the fall are a blessing and a curse. The last day of the work week, cool weather, and the earliest sunsets that make you want to cry until daylight savings ends. With such afternoons being too good to pass up, the plan was to check out Verduga while my car was being aligned in Glendale.
As I pedaled into the hills, the thick layer of haze and smog blocking my view was almost enough to turn me off from the idea. With my other option of waiting around and doing work on the computer, I opted for the ride.
The funny thing about imperfect weather is the totally eerie, and at times perfect atmosphere it creates. The thickly diffused, late afternoon sun bathed the whole valley in soft, nearly impenetrable light, making the views as surreal as LA itself is.
I lucked out this time, natures soft box was pushing beautiful light in my direction and I was more than content to take it all in.
