Solitary Leaf

Singular promise

To me, a big part of the enjoyment of being in Nature is allowing the vibrations of the environment to wash over myself and becoming more attuned to the surroundings. As that happens, I tend to discover the little things that are everywhere, such as in today’s image.

Solitary Leaf

The solitary leaf stands tentatively, capturing the morning sun among its many competitors, here at the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge.  As I was walking I noticed these singular leaves popping up, standing filled with expectation for a future filled with promise.

What do you discover during your walks?

Shot of the Week – vol 10

Ready for Spring!

How long do you think I would go without posting something about my Lady of the Fields? I agree with you that it’s been too long!

Spring is in the air!

The first hint of Spring was showing this past week, as the temperatures have been unseasonably warm and all of Nature got a bounce back in its step!  The Yoga Tree was no exception, as she is showing the first growth of the season at the tips of her branches.

She stands tall and proud, overseeing the activities in the field, as all prepare for Spring!

Saturday Morning Mood

Ever present in the moment

As Saturdays are very much free form, and I will be having a nice Scottish breakfast in a little while, here is a bit of mood lighting…

The Weather is Perfect!

This scene presented itself to me in late October a couple of years back, while I was taking a short stroll on this farm conservation land.  I was struck by the depth of color, against the sky’s blue and lovely clouds, which lead me to creating this little tableau.

Scenes along these lines are moments of meditation to me, as one cannot help but be amazed by the beauty and balance that surrounds us, as long as we take the time to focus on our breath and be present.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
