Of silver and feathers

After many days of mild grey weather,

The early morning light

Carried whispers on the breeze

Of a frosty world of silver.

(See how the iced reeds match the bark of the silver birches?)

In the silence of that iced-over dawn

Peace floated down

As light and beautiful as a feather.

    Last image got a huge Grunt out of me with its punctuation. The first evoked a sigh. The middle allowed perspective and horizon to accept the words. You see it then you take the photograph. Divine eyes and whispered words you use with great ease.

  6. So intriguing, Fiona… Seeing the feathers make me realize how much we miss in nature when we overlook the small things… Love your SILVERS and FEATHERS.

  70. The picture of the birches is so beautiful. I’d like a magic carpet to let me experience your early winter for just a day or two. The pictures are almost enough to make me forget that I don’t do cold well.)

  85. Love all these images here (even the ones in the post above), but the birch photo is simply stunning, there is something very pristine and gentle, almost ethereal about it… One expect an elf to appear.;) Your photography is alluring at all times, always a pleasure to visit you, sorry it has been so sporadic recently.;)
    Have a great week.;)
