Sunlight for the soul

Pack up your worries, put on your coat and come enjoy the sunny side of life with me (and my macro lens)!

Let’s be artists and paint the snow with sunlight,

Brushing the world with golden tones that leave jewels on branches.

Come with me and tickle the branches until all of nature laughs in sunshine

So that briefly, we capture the moment in its golden nets.

  4. Ah! Nature’s fleeting beauty… diamonds gleaming in the sunlight. Here today yet gone tomorrow. Cherish it while we may! Fortunately captured by your lens for us to enjoy in perpetuity (without having to go out in the snow :))

  12. Do you know of rock candy, Fi? The snow crystals in the last two images flooded my mind with memories of the hard, sweet candy I bought after school when I was young.

    To answer your question from the other day..Gene Autry was a real life cowboy..who was a singer..he sang and wrote Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer..he was quite the attraction in the 1950’s..all the little boys and girls liked him:)
