Traces of Life...


There are moments in life when we encounter something that causes us to pause. These moments often cause us to reflect on life, whether current or past, providing a perspective or insight of appreciation which reaches in and touches our soul. What's often interesting is that in these moments, the feelings that enters our spirits aren't brash, fast, hard, or abrupt. They often come as a fresh breeze, light as a feather, welcomed as if walking through an open door. Here's to more moments of calm, light breezes of our souls.

"It's a Small World"...


Nature surround us - big and small. This small section of a forest floor includes a blend of small waterfalls, rocks, grass, lichen, and flowers yet to bloom. If you explore this photograph, you may see a tiny waterfall near center-left.

Small Wonders...


It doesn't take much light to conquer the darkness. The smallest of positive light can make a difference. This small wildflower is barely an inch off the ground, surrounded by blades of grass much taller than itself, yet it outshines the rest.

"Beyond Prime"...


Seasons come and go, but beauty endures. With petals the size of an ant, this tiny flower continues to show it's beauty regardless of size, color, shape, or age (season). Beauty continues to exist beneath all the colors and textures our senses can experience. What we consider as prime may be only the beginning of our experience.

"Harmony"...


For some grace means elegance and beauty of movement. In Greek mythology, it was a favorite subject for sculptors. However you prefer to define it, this photograph of a Trumpeter Swan shows elegance and form in perfect harmony.

"Blurring the Lines"...


Nature is forever changing. If we were to speed up the change, it would be a blur. This is why we need to slow down to view the detail before it all becomes a blur.
