Golden wonder

The early winter light

Is all about long, warm shadows;

It’s about painting frozen trees

With golden lace

And transforming the sky

Into a wonder of pink and gold.

    Fiona, you never cease to amaze me with your photography. These photo’s are magnificent! The lighting is gorgeous!

    “It’s about painting frozen trees

    That shot took my breath away.

    You have such a wonderful way of using words to paint images.

    Have a super day, my friend! X
