Emotography Week 45

Surprise

I was surprised to find these interesting patterns in the paling fence in my backyard.

If I “open my eyes”,

Perhaps I will see

The things of beauty

that lie around me.

“Normal” and “everyday”

Though they appear

I may be happily surprised

If I take myself near.

Emptography Week 21

Wonder

Sometimes the most unexpected things suddenly catch my eye and cause me to wonder at the creations of Nature, both small and large.

This week  for instance, I saw a lovely pattern of shadows of a fence running up a hillside, a beautiful sprinkling of raindrop crystals on the ends of all the branches of a pine tree.

Then there was this piece of mandarin peel, which was in the shape of a leaf and has the interesting interior of a piece of delicate crochet work.

How generous Nature is to bestow such unexpected “discoveries” on us.

Appreciation

This photo is probably technically all wrong,but I was struck with the beauty of the light in the scene.
The sheep are outlined with light, the branches of the deciduous shrub has
light tangled in its bare branches and the small pond has been silvered with light, even the tiny plants reflected in the water have been touched by the power of light to meld them into the water colour more effectively. Whilst on the surface diamonds have caught the light and thrown it back to the skies from whence it came.
I truly appreciated the difference in this scene, which I have walked by many times, that light had brought to it.
