On the edge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa in Rohnert Park, local residents soaked in the last sun rays of Halloween at the Santa Rosa Pumpkin Patch off Stony Point Road.  The continuation of  pleasant weather has given summer a little more ledge to hang on. The light for photography has been close to outrageous for weeks on end now.

Here’s to Halloween and the end of October.
