refuge

this 
 morning
barely past
 7:00
 i stop and look
 and the sun keeps illuminating 
 more
 of this wetland
 maintaining 
 a refuge for many many birds 
and their friends.
 and just up the road 
 another group 
 of ladies
 greet the
frosted winter sun.

The ladies make me smile; they look so wild and woolly! I am about to learn mono-printing; I need to remember the lines of the trees and rushes above the water...

Hi V - loved the I'm,ages on FB - but even more in your post - such tender light in the early morning - just caresses everything - not to harsh to show flaws and soft to give soft reflections. Go well. B

I just stole another handful of pictures and will send a proper tithe along when I have finished this batch. I love the way you see your commute. Come visit me here sometime, and I will show you mine.
