in pursuit



I had one of those days this past weekend . so my camera and I took a walk

a

found abstract shelter under an oak . bare branches and all

c

was enchanted by three deep red dogwood leaves . still hanging on

b

feeling refreshed at home again . I curled up on the couch and found peace

What a good way to turn one of those days around.
Rocks
Trees
and Leaves
always ready to "be", just "be."

Hello Elk,
It is amazing the way time spent in nature with our cameras in hand can calm us so. The image of the oak branches is my favorite - such a wonderful design! Reminds me of Japanese woodblock prints :)
Wishing you a great week!
