#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

Feathery Clouds Over Trestle

Feathery Clouds Over Trestle

This morning I became happily absorbed crunching around in the frozen marsh in a forest of cattails. I composed a dozen photos of the fluffy beasts and fell in love with none of them.

What moved my spirit was the trestle bridge, below, framed in a stream of golden sun, and above, silvered under the feathered tails of clouds on a striking blue screen - such energetic compositions to frame my Monday morning.

As soon as I saw this photo, I took a long, cleansing breath and reminded myself there’s peace in the beauty of nature.

I love how the little floating stick in the foreground feels like a grace note in the scene.
