Twilight falls early here on the dark side of my mountain. In burgeoning days of Spring I am overjoyed to have a little light to work with at the end of the day. So I stroll out to my forest sanctuary on the edge of my property and welcome the awakening wildflowers back into my life. Their rising starts slowly. The first few are always seated in just the right place to catch the last few rays of the sun as it swiftly fades behind the far ridge. Magic hour has arrived! Magic hour is the fleeting moment between the full strength of the sun and the moment that the dusk to dawn lights come on. The songbirds are joined by Spring Peepers and together their lullaby sings the light to sleep. The night winds spill over the mountains and rattle the few remaining fall leaves on the young beech trees. They flutter in small bursts to add rhythm to the evening chorus. The hillside is dotted with the tiny glory of the early blooms. As I looked down at my feet the False Rue Anemone seemed to call my name and beckoned me to take her portrait. She is the essence of simple beauty in the evening. Her perfect petals and upward gaze standing just above the outstretched leaves form the welcoming gesture of nature. I snapped the shutter and added her smile to my collection to pull out and enjoy forever.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
