We bid Cabo a good evening. The days here are beginning to fly at warp speed and it seems there is nothing to slow it down. It seems vacations are like this. They start off slow and before you know it, the end is in sight.

The sun is rising and the golden light showers the shores of Cabo San Lucas as the fishing boats head out to sea and the gulls try to find their best perch. Not one swimmer is in the water. For good reason. It looks calm and very beautiful, but the steep beach falls into the waves creating an undertow that can not be beaten by even the best swimmer. Don't be deceived by the warm water and seemingly gentle waves.

We have been visiting Cabo San Lucas fairly regularly for a few years now. Thanks Dani and Jeff!! Some things have changed a great deal and some have stayed very much the same. This marina has grown a great deal as have the boats calling these docks home and the surrounding shopping and eating establishments. Cabo is the contrast of upscale and downscale, expensive and inexpensive, plush and rustic. I prefer the old town, the shop keepers who love to interact with us visitors, and the dealing and dickering that ensues. Today's deal? Breakfast for $5. And let's throw in a Bloody Mary (cause it's Sunday).

The Northern Pacific is beautiful as it meets the Sea of Cortez at the southern most tip of Baja California. The people on this cruise ship get to visit for a day. I on the other hand am privileged to spend a week here. And as with many place I visit, it is the people, not the seascapes that make it all the more worthwhile. Happy to be here in Cabo San Lucas. Warm, breezy and beautiful.

For all I know, this is poison ivy, but it is striking to see against the dark bark background when most of the other trees are still green (except near water), I drive by this tree every day and a year ago, I would have kept driving. Now, I hunt for a place to pull over, pop my trunk and grab my camera. It's like I can see now.

I have been shooting pictures every day for three seasons and already, I can tell that, except for travel, fall is absolutely the best time to take photographs. Not only is the light different in fall, shorter days with easier access to the magic hour, but the colors are just amazing. But it is fleeting for sure. This photograph is possible for about six days in a year because the leaves on trees bordering streams, bogs, swamps and this river fall quickly. Next week the reds and oranges you see here will be brown. This is the meandering Still Water River, Sterling, Massachusetts.

I am Robert McKay Jones, a photographer from Sterling, Massachusetts. I take photographs almost every day. I will post my favorites here.
