I allowed the big blue truck to coast to a stop on the side of the interstate highway just outside of Summersville West Virginia. The temptation to try and get a few shots of the large pond fed by Muddelty Creek has finally gotten the best of me. I rolled down the passenger side window and looked out at graceful willows as they peered into their own reflections on the water. Light showers disturb the surface of the pond just enough to give the reflections a mystical feel. At times it seems like the other world is just beyond the water in some dream that’s almost tangible. It was at that moment of deep imagination that movement recalled my presence of mind back to the corporeal landscape. They moved in unison while suspended between heaven and earth and lit in the old snag. They didn’t need to vocalize or receive directions from ground control to coordinate their synchronized maneuvers bit instead relied upon the instinctive knowledge of each other. They both just stopped on the dead limbs as if drawn in by a magnet. I extended the lens and held their semblance in my lens. A moment of time held in both my memory and in my camera. But the desire to ebb just a little closer was my downfall and with the opening of the truck’s door they vanished as suddenly as they arrived.
