The big blue slowly rolls past the highland delta of Muddelty Creek. With the window down and the truck moving only at idle speed I can hear the crunch of the gravel beneath the wheels as I glide down the one lane road. My eyes sweep over the reeds and rushes looking for any sign of waterfowl or even a deer near the water’s edge. The marsh is quiet except for the occasional rattle of dry leaves in the wind. As I track the sound and listen to the chant like rythem of the rattling leaves my eyes come to rest on the young Alder tree. I zero in on the textures of the leaves and twigs. The rest of world fades away and for a moment it seems like the only two things in the universe are the Alder and me. Even the breeze pauses as time suspends in my frame. For a brief moment the world holds perfect silence and the snapping of the shutter unlocks the rest of the world from suspended animation. But in that perfect moment there was no difference between eternity and an instant. I had entered into nature to look for God and God smiled back at me.
