Photo Challenge: Blue and Gold in a Lake’s Mirror

I had the whole sky in my eyes and it was blue and gold.

—Albert Camus, L’Etranger

Blue and Gold complement each other as dusk softly envelops a Michigan lake.  Tranquility is your companion  on a humid July evening.

Under the Rocks are the Words…

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.  I am haunted by waters.

Photo Challenge: The Odds of Her Perfect Pose

Brightening an autumn day, this deer stepped gingerly out of the shady woods onto a well-lit path.  But, what are the odds that the shutter would click just as she pivoted to bolt back into the woods.   She said she would love to stay and talk but  had to pick up the fawns.

Photo Challenge: Komorebi, or Dappled Light

Komorebi is a Japanese word, meaning the scattered, dappled light effect when sunlight shines through tree leaves.  We have quite a bit of experience with this concept in Michigan.
