Frozen Dogwood Days

stirring still seeds,

diving deeply into the divine.

I will make your day by commenting and thanking you for making mine :-)
That cornus you captured in the top picture:
You know what you have achieved with that, don't you?
Cornus is always stiff and ungiving, even though it throws out a red stick now and then to cheer up the yellow ones.
You made it bend gracefully!!!
Did you talk to it? Tell it to let go a little?
I bet you did :-)
"seed salutation"

Sometimes phrases are so delicious, I just have to savor them. This is one!

Dogwood. It grows where I live. Sometimes people mistake it for Red Willow. All these photographs are stunning. I love the second one with the frost crystals. Just beautiful. The haiku, aliterative with esses and dees. I like it.

Peace

such a moment reminds me of life always moves and motions forward... the lilac bushes in front of my house i noticed the other day are growing just the most minuet of buds... even tho it is still so cold and winter is here spring is definitely in the air... the power of a seed... it is important to remember, thank you...

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter!
