Spring sparkles

It was one of those perfect spring evenings

When the sun made stars out of water

Perfect evening

And Oscar made abstract art

Out of water pearls.


On the way home, I turned around

To see my daughter caught in the fairy glitter

And become one with nature.

Bright light

The setting sun

Threw its golden drops

On grass and woodland flowers

As if to say: Stop. Look. Listen.

And appreciate.

  37. Oh I had such a good visit here, catching up on the last few amazing blogs. When my blog grows up I want it to look just like this one!! I am thinking of changing my page so I can have the pictures large like yours. WordPress has such nice pages. Everytime you go out with the camera you capture these dream like photos that speak poetry to me.

  45. Nice pictures. For my autumn shots I had the camera on a tripod with the camera focused on the leaves. I turned off the auto-focus once it was set up. The shutter speed was long – deliberately to get a blur of P has she ran through the leaves.
