Feburary Morning Light


I stand and stare at the glow behind the trees, the red jeweled tones of first morning light.


to the East it grows lighter and to the West the Maple tree leaves are painted


It grows lighter and lighter as I struggle to shoot through tall trees, I turn and look to the West again.


The dead leaves hanging from the avacado tree come to glowing life and so does the corner of the pink towel hanging on the rack.  In a few seconds it changes from glow to just dead leaves and a faded pink towel. for just a moment they lived again.

Pretty pretty. You gave new life to old things. Those first couple pictures look like there's fire behind those trees

I love the fast changing morning light. Here, this morning, the colors were white, gray and the palest of blues--beautiful too.

Best,
Bonnie

Proof positive that the early MadSnapper catches morning glory as it lights and shades and enhances. I love the towel in the collage
Cold up here today. Madi is hunkered down.

Your captures show us, once again, Sandra, that it's possible to capture amazing images just by looking around our own environment. The colors reminded me of autumn for some reason.
