Fall Reflections on Simmons Creek Pond 1 Sized Digi

Save

Reflection : re·flec·tion : rəˈflekSH(ə)n : [noun] : the throwing back by a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it.

A famous photographer said,

‘It’s all about the light.’

Though I cannot remember who said that,

I think about light every time I take my camera out to shoot.

Without light there would be no photographs,

without light we cannot see.

Have you ever been in a deep mine where there is no light whatsoever

and had the tour guide tell everyoneto turn off their headlamps?

Absolute darkness, nothing.

You can see nothing!

:  :  :

So light is a miraculous gift of God to enjoy His creation,

He gave the sun for day and the moon and stars

for the dark nights.

Yesterday,

I took my Fuji XT2 with me,

driving the back roads near Morton and Mossyrock.

The brilliant early afternoon light dappled the forest surrounding me

with deep, dark shadows and vivid greens,

some yellows and bits of red.

Driving up in elevation, on a Forest Road I came upon a small bridge,

as I approached the forest gave way to this

shallow pond on Simmons creek.

A small fir tree about six or eight feet tall was growing out of

an old Western Red cedar stump in the water.

The light from the cloudless,

clear cerulean blue sky cast this appealing dark umber shadow

on the pond surface, the slight early fall breeze

causing the subtle ripple,

forming an almost abstract

piece of art.

:  :  :

Speaking of art,

my husband bought in and put up the four shelving units

in my art room today,

so now, I can begin putting

things away,

yay!

~Blessings Always~
