A Change of Heart

Yogic Seasons

The WordPress Daily Photo Challenge provides the theme of Transformation.

One of our most constant companions, that contribute greatly to our existence on this planet, are trees. These stately producers of oxygen, building material, shelter, shade and so much more, were often worshipped in ancient times for the magic they contain. My appreciation of trees has shown itself in quite a bit of my work, and, in particular, one tree: the Yoga Tree.

Over the years, the Yoga Tree has transformed herself in response to the seasons, as well as her environment, as you can see in the Winter images. She has always stood with pride and dignity, even now, when she is surrounded by the detritus that makes up a compost farm…

Here’s a look at some of her transformations…

This tree has brought me much joy over the years that I photographed her, and I hope that some of these images bring a bit of joy to those who view them.

Have a wonderful day!

Beauty of transformation

The WordPress Daily Photo Challenge provides the theme of Transformation.

Transformation is something that surrounds us at all times, as the pace of change in the world around us can at times be breakneck and at other times be glacial. One of the most enjoyable areas of change for me is the constant flow of the seasons, particular the one that I like best: Autumn.

Autumn is that one season when we get to take a deep breath after the heat of Summer dissipates and before our breath is taken away by the frigid temperatures of Winter. Add the beauty of the leaves colors in New England and we have  perfect season!

Here’s a view of this change…
