This could be known as Day Two With The New Lens. The Lens and I had an outing this morning, on this gray, damp, chilly day. I drove out to my favorite woods in this area, a place where Mark and I go frequently, and where my two girl friends and I had our own photo walk a few weeks ago. The only other people there were park maintenance people. It was incredibly quiet and peaceful.
I love the contrasts in this image, the bright yellows against the grays. The light against dark. And the lingering sign of fall yielding to winter’s chill.
It’s good in my mind to know that already on these trees a bud is in place for the leaves of next spring. I found that very comforting today. I don’t know what those leaves will look like, but that does not matter. What matters is that they already exist. That the tree will rest for a season, be replenished, and blossom into green luscious shade in just a few months from now.
To everything there is a season.
