My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?
The shoots are coming up in our pond.
In winter the pond gets kind of aggressive and the land around it gets soggy. This soggy. (Note to self: replace that boardwalk thingie, the fact that it’s too waterlogged to float is Not a Good Sign.)
This is the corner that got walloped by the pine and fir; these pictures were taken a few days previously. Not sure how much will have survived the walloping to make pretty reflections.
Snow is in the forecast for tonight, and then freezing rain, well, actually the forecasters are being a little vague. There’s precipitation coming into a cold front that’s been sitting over us, and then almost immediately it’s going to warm up, and who knows what will happen? seems to be the refrain.
I don’t have to drive anywhere tomorrow, so if it snows I’ll happily take pictures. But meanwhile, snow from a few days ago. These pictures of the slough on our property were taken early, before the sun had cleared the trees.
Actually, dewdrops on the wee Japanese maple, catching the sunlight. But appropriately seasonal lights nonetheless.
And here’s wishing the light and love of the season to you and yours.
A beautiful day for photographing rockpools on sandstone.
It was the congruity of the shapes in the reflection and the background that caught my eye.
With a ferry.
With Our Dog. Waiting. Waiting patiently. Waiting patiently for the Ball to be Thrown.
This is the last set of pictures from the trip to the west coast of Vancouver Island—the odds and ends. This first one is the lighthouse at Amphitrite Point—spectacular in a storm, but not too shabby on a sunny day either. (I just discovered there’s a live webcam of this lighthouse, now there’s something to bring up on a story day!)
Crab shells. And more…!
But partly it’s been because I’ve been away for a few days… here.
Long Beach, Vancouver Island. One of the prettiest places on earth. I’ll post more pictures over the next few days.
In the seasonal creek running through our yard.
And nice reflections.
I believe the green is algae; I’ve no idea what the white is and why it only appears on one rock in the area.
