Before The Rainfall

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Yarrow 62020a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Softly the sunlight flows through the overcast skies and washes over the land. The yarrow catches my imagination and for a moment I’m connected with the healers of antiquity as they treat the wounds of heroes and hunters and even the scraped knees of children. God put good things in the earth for us if we are just wise enough to learn.

The breeze gently disturbs the scene but only for a moment. Deeper into the bushes small wrens flicker from branch to branch chasing the insects.

A little farther up the hill on the edge of the fallow pasture a mourning dove coos. An older gentlemen who I once worked with in my youth said that he always called them rain crows because they call out just before it rains.

I turn my attention back to the yarrow and noticed vetches in the background. I began to work with the angles and focus to get tonight’s feature image. Without warning a giant raindrop found its way to the back of my neck. The old man was right in calling that bird a rain crow. No sooner had I closed the door on the big blue truck that the downpour began. It was time to get back to the house and process the images.

    1. Thank you so much ❤ I really started in photography to do events and portraits. The video is new because I was creating a new slideshow with every post.
      I plan to continue to do the nature posts for as long as I'm able to get out and take photos.
