Finding A Flame

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Red And Gold 101519” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The morning sun breaks over the ridge above my home and is greeted by the birds. I noticed light playing outside my window and felt the urge to go out and greet the sun with the birds. I followed the light around my yard as it danced on the water in the creek and lead me to the a little sweet gum tree on the edge of forest. The sun crept through a gap in the still green leaves and lit up the single red and gold leaf on the gum tree. I felt as though God were standing the grinning and telling me “Look at what I did!”

The bicolored leaf stood out and brought to mind the thoughts of candle flame.

I marveled for a moment as I raised my lens and captured the flame that lit my soul.

    1. I’ve noticed more of them this year than in previous years. Mature Sweet Gum normally turns yellow in my area and the seedlings turn red. But I’ve also seen it in a viburnum which makes me think it’s either a soil condition or that the wavelength of light was different this year.
