Day 3  Snow and Salt Virgin snow melt rushes down to meet Salty waves flowing into creek Swirling, dancing they become as one Happy union reflecting rays from sun Tides and currents interwine Hear them whisper that you are mine Ebb and flow as time does pass But short reunion cannot last As tide does return to oceans…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Hidden in the woods renewal is continuous, mostly unobserved by human eye, as season pass from growth in spring to death in winter.   Only to rise again the following year.  A renewal cycle that has been maintained for millennium. But we are also privy to changes that are so tremendous that they overwhelm our…

Such a great inspiration to stimulate the creative spirit as evidenced by the many and varied responses. I looked at a number of subjects from nature to travel. But one idea seemed perfect.  Good friends are always encouraging my photography through ideas and contacts. In this case W alerted me to this display that was…
