I awoke to a new world today. The first day of December arrived on time and covered my mountain with a blanket of fresh snow. “You need to get out with your camera.” My wife said gently as she began to give our dog his morning belly rub. Soon afterwards I found myself going up the mountain in my big blue truck. The fresh aroma of coffee wafting up from my thermos is all the more satisfying when the snow is blowing. I stopped by several different places to take pictures and eventually made my way to Muddlety Creek to visit the marsh. The songbirds were huddled in the thickets well protected from the icy dagger like wind sweeping across the open wetlands. The marsh is thick with the swamp rose which seems to not suffer from issues that domestic roses need constant defending from. The bright red hips are the perfect accent amid the tan snow covered reeds. I set the breaks on the big blue truck and roll the window down. The silence of the marsh brings an otherworldly feel to the scene as I snap the shutter. This day will become a snow globe in my lens and all that exists is the berries and myself.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
