I love the 3D effect of this photograph, including the forest, and the 'no snow' in the background. Your expression is sublime. I hope flowers grow where you are in the springtime..
Thank you, Ginger Mickey.I thought the forest looked beguiling, an eerie kind of beautiful, if that is possible. The light was unusual because there was a filtering cloud over the sun.The woodland strawberry and early blue violet should be out in a couple of weeks, and then it's a parade of wildflowers through the summer. One of the trails meanders along a fen where the wild-flag iris fairly sing the blues, another winds through a meadow where a species or two are always coming into bloom as a couple of others go to seed. I am most fond of these places.
Those places sound beautiful. Love hiking trails through forests and meadows in the springtime. I can't wait to see some pictures of your wildflowers.
Most of the snow is gone, so it's just a matter of the ground thawing so the roots can get going. We're stuck under cool air, though, and it's beginning to try my patience.
My Grandmother always says, 'good things come to those that wait', so this spring and summer will be spectacular for you! I'll send some heat your way too.
Thank you, I'd appreciate that; and if you'd like, I could try sending a little rain to your shores.
A personal favorite. Quiet, moody, interesting. This kind of casual pose in an after-Twilight forest grove would work beautifully in other settings. Just sayin.'
I was captivated by the forest in the unusual light. If I'd let my imagination run wild, I would have posed stark naked in midair, with my wings fluttering on my back.
