Knitted Rainbow

In the early morning hours I am greeted by my favorite gremlin who has knitted me a glorious web that catches a rainbow of light upon the silky threads.

Ripple Effect

Sun dappled waters ripple to the shore like whispered secrets ready to be told.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


Early morning light fingers gently into the waking lake... nearby leaves light up in joyous illumination.

Harvest Moon

Golden sphere of heart's delight, watching over dark of night.

Sunday, September 26, 2010


Within the cavity of a hollowed out trunk are the busy remains of life's debris... in a frenzied wait for renewal.

Stark White

A bridal burst of white, flowers the autumnal backdrop.

Still Water

From the dark and murky water of a childhood stream, an open aperture reveals a reversed world beautifully reflected upon the stagnant surface.

Last Rose of Summer

This big showy redhead seemed to call me from across the street. Late in the season, the best bloom was saved for last!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010


There is beauty even in a felled tree that lies quietly by the flow of water, offering a sign of peace.

Pretty Little Maidens

Perky little maiden heads light up the porch as their dewy faces dry in the morning sun.

Dancing Feather

Wet and wild... she dances with abandon upon the stage at the edge of lake.

Yellow Brick Road

Tall munchkins look on as the yellow brick road beckons us into the woodz.

Casting a Line

A makeshift house on the river's edge made of sticks. Can you see the wood fairy casting a line from atop of the roof?

Canyon Cathedral

Pretty soon a westward trip will bring us back to the beauty and tranquility of the Grand Canyon... below the lookout where few tourists dare to tread, I snapped a sacred cathedral amidst the expanse of ancient rock.

Little Rusty with his baby white polka dots strolls through the yard with all the grace and aplomb of a much older deer. Perhaps he feels the love I send as he poses unafraid for my camera.

Beyond the Dunes

Petulant clouds gather overhead darkening the swell of dune ever so lightly. Grasses bend with the blow of the breeze, waving at the blue skies and listening to murmurs of the ocean which rolls steadily beyond.

A Swoon of Green

Stained glass peering beyond the canopy of early morning trees, the dangle of one small branch is touched by the rising rays of sun and dips gracefully in breathless delight.

Tiger Lily Legend

"There is an old legend from Asia about the Tiger Lily. A Korean hermit helped a wounded tiger by removing an arrow from its body. The tiger asked the hermit to use his powers to perpetuate their friendship after his death. The hermit agreed and when the tiger died, his body became a tiger lily. Eventually the hermit drowned and his body was washed away. The Tiger Lily spread everywhere searching for its friend."

All about Tiger Lillies

Love's Return

From the quiet recesses of Nature along a shallow pond, love is reflected back from its own unique perspective.

High Drama

The trees are in their seat complacently watching the drama unfold on the big screen. The bruising color of anger holds them spellbound... a remarkable performance indeed!

Incessant Demands

"But Dad, I'm still hungry" chirps the chubby fledgling who hops around in a constant state of flutter, begging for food to be delivered directly to his beak. The sparrow dad is patient and compliant with these incessant demands and yet on close-up there is a sense of annoyance as he's wishing for junior to "grow up and get your own damned food."

Pink Princess

A regal princess caught sunbathing at the edge of the canal... a girlish blush of pink coyly emerging from the thicket.

Fairy Respite

On the wooded banks of the lake, I spy a webbed hammock at the base of a tree... the yard of fairy folk who rest after the moon dancing, lulled by the gentle lapping of rippled waters on the shore.

Silent Symphony

At Carnegie Lake the musicians assemble with the orchestral colors of a symphonic warm-up... silent, but splendid nevertheless!

Upstart Jumpstart

It's been over a month that I have watched this circle of orange defy the summer with it's rush to change. The sun rises to illuminate the rebel patch, while the others wait complacently for their turn to glow in the Autumn light.

Wild One

At the side of the road a pretty little weed peers up from the scrappy surroundings and shines... erratically placed petals mark a wild spirit that stands alone yet dares to be noticed.

Settling Sky

At sunset, it is as if the clouds promenade into place to catch the waning rays of light in a silent waltz of color.

Friday, September 3, 2010

Tree Weeps

Sentimental willow weeps its leaves into the lake under the hot August sun. Change is coming and yet all is well.

Ocher Mist

A sulfuric cloud wafts over still waters, rising mist of sunlit dampness. Beyond the ocher confusion, the pond is still, cool, reflective... mirror of Nature take my gaze.

I love my little squirrel friends who somersault in the dried leaves and hang off the trees to try so hard to rob the seed in the bird feeders. Sometimes they will boldly come right up on my porch and do a limp armed beg for a reward of a marcona almond.
