Giving Pause...

We all have our own reasons for taking a moment to pause. Whereever we are. Whatever we're doing. Whether it's to respect the past, the place or the time. I'll leave your interpretation of why this Coyote paused for a moment and lowered it's head at dusk. A special moment.

"Voices in the Clouds"...

An abandoned home sits atop a hill as the sky expands from above and the grasses spread from below. If you stare at the house long enough, you may begin to see the sky expand. Comments welcome.

Wader of Quiet Waters...

The Great Egret (also known as Great White Egret or Common Egret), Ardea alba, has an average wingspan around 5 feet. They nest in trees, near water and gather in groups called colonies. The great egret is the symbol of the National Audubon Society and represents a conservation success story.
