The first image I took caught me because of the transition between the frozen water, the melting water and the flowing water running over the rocks. The reflection in the first was so clear it confused me for a moment.
Then I realized how lovely the cascade really was, broken, splintered trees dragged down stream and all.
And then deep inside, the colours got me; the transparency. Frozen to flowing all within three feet..
I loved the way this mass of dried scrub reached and touched it’s own reflection on the water’s surface.
I took a walk yesterday in the cedar swampland close to me because it was SO beautiful outside. The skies were blue in a way that just nothing else can be and the trees cast long, barren shadows over the leaf litter. I could have stayed forever. The follow set of photos are from this walk, all taken on my new Canon.
Inside out, upside down, multiplied magnificence.
I turned it on its side to use as wallpaper for my phone. I just bought a fantastic new lens for my Canon and the format needs adjusting so I can take pics that will turn the right way around on mobile.
This tree is nothing but gnarled knots and stumps where branches once reached out to the sky. Ugly, half dead and home to at least half a dozen animals, this old girl is so beautiful in a way that’s all her own.
