Fire!

Bonfire sillhouette, Black and white, B&W, Monochromes, Photography, iPhone,

Cool outdoors and the fire crackles and blazes,
The sparks leap up and hang twinkling in the pitch dark sky,
You feel the deep connection with Universe and the fellows around…
That kind of night….

Fire

Texture rich!

Being with nature!
This past weekend we watched the sun go down at the beach. The gulls circling the water in the setting sun as the colors got warmer and the contrast deeper. Another day came and went, but if it leaves you satisfied, you know you have made the most of it.

For the acrophobic that I am, it is most unusual for me to sit in one! 

These unusual nooks and crannies…

As much as I love Nature, I am wary of going too close into the nooks and crannies, if you will, of the plants and trees. I am not most comfortable at the thought of insects and the like. But one morning of last week, I was prodded by my visiting mother to check out this latticework in one such spot in the grass and close to the plants roots, in the dark and the deep. It was magical how the dew drops settled on the fragile spiderweb: this striking show tucked away from the world.
