Early May ~

There is a quality of light that arrives in May. It arrived the other day with the leaves emerging from the trees. One has a sense that one can see the refractions in the light range. That one can see the particles moving in waves to make a shifting light pouring down on us through the tree limbs, while the trees are beginning to wave in green, a green that can be felt, never described. Between the emerging leaves waving gracefully in the light, and the light, we stand in celebration.

Here are some images that reflect these impressions :

Autumn delights

I notice that it is difficult to capture the shifting energies and light of early September. I have tried a few flower photos, but they fall short of the intensity of color. Instead, I found a bouquet this morning that said everything, the resilient brilliance of end of summer beauty:

And here are a few more that capture the light and angles of reflection~
