Lingering Glow

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Lingering Glow” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The light smilies down on my home in the Appalachian Mountains and brings a warm glow to the surrounding forest. There is precious little time for it to impart it’s gift of color before the gray world of winter clears the canvas. One hundred and eightyfoue sunsets are impressed onto the leaves waiting for the big reveal in Fall. The trees cling to their glory for as long as they can until the chilly winds lull them to sleep and sweep away the artwork which soon turns brown and crumbles into dust. But for a few days the warm glow lingers and is given while we walk in the light and warm our own souls under the multitude of little sunsets.

Race For The Light

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Drifting Thoughts” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The morning sun beckons me to come out and play for a little while. I accept that invitation because there’s still 42 days until the darkness recedes and the days begin to lengthen again. A light jacket is more than enough to fend off the slight chill in the air as I step out into the welcoming glow. The sound of tiny feet scurrying through the dry leaves draws my attention to the hillside just beyond my door. As I search for the source of the noise I see several squirrels bounding up out of the deep leaf litter on the forest floor. As they expload up from the ground the wind picks up the colorful leaves and carries them down into the creek. The floating leaves race past me like tiny rafts. In my wildest imagination I see little elves manning each one in a desperate attempt to be the first crew to guide their “raft” through the rapids.

I can see that the bank of the creek is littered with failed “leaf-rafts” but the little elves are a hardy clan and when they run aground they tirelessly make their way back upstream to try again. I imagine the captain encouraging his crew and saying that nobody fails unless they give up.

Image Titled “Slipping Through”.

It wasn’t long before the elves had secured another leaf and returned with more determination than ever before. As they crested the spot where they were foiled on the last trip the tiny craft dipped and took on water. Several of elves began bailing out the leaf with acorn caps and for the first time ever they broke through the rapid in this spot. The captain rushed to the raft’s bow and peered into the distance to see more rapids ahead!

Invigorated by their recent victory the elven crew slipped through the rapids like they were born on the water. And just below that last set of rapids they saw their goal. The calm pool where the golden light plays.

Image Titled “The Pool Of The Golden Light “.

As the elves glided their raft into the pool they celebrated with an song as ancient as the hills. As the song ended the purpose of the journey was revealed. Each elf produced a net made from spider web cast it into the light pool. The enchanted nets caught the very light itself and they hauled it up and collected it in a glass jar. Once the jar was full they carried it and the leaf-raft back into the forest and into a hollow log which served as the gateway to their world. The raft would be displayed in the king’s hall of honor and the jar of light would power their world for generations to come.

A Mist Covered Morning On Three Rivers

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Waiting On A Train” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

As the morning light fills the world a thick fog flows down the mountain and pools over the three rivers. I pull the big blue truck off of the road and jump out for a few shots. The water birds turn to greet the sun as it lights up the valley. The train doesn’t use the bridge in the distance but in my spirit I can hear the faded echoes of the train’s horn and the rumbling of the thunderous wheels that passed by in a forgotten age. The trees were just starting to show their colors and my morning coffee shielded me from the penetrating cold carried in the mists. As I stood on the bank of the Kanawha River looking to where it joins with the Gauley River and the New River I had to thank God for placing me in these mountains where every day is a new creation and every moment is a work of art.

Kanawha Falls In Amber 3

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Kanawha Falls In Amber 3” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The river playfully slips over and around the rocks at Kanawha Falls. The farthest tree out appears to be a yellow poplar standing by itself on a large flat rock. I’m amazed at how strong it seems in spite of the fact that it’s growing on bare stone. It stands there gracefully looking out over the falls as a silent sentinel witnessing the change of seasons. I wonder how many kayaks it’s seen go over the falls? How many faces have passed beneath it branches? Has it listened to the conversations of those who explore life while taking a break on the rocks it calls home?

I braced my lens on a monopod and zoomed in on the tree as close as I could get with glass and steel and brought the tree home to witness my life as well. Perhaps at the end of all things when these silent witnesses give their account to the Creator the story it tells will be one worthy of listening to.

Kanawha Falls In Amber Number 2

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Kanawha Falls In Amber Number 2” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

As the Kanawha River flows over the dam and rocks mists rise from the mountains. The steady drizzle of rain has replenished the landscape and allowed the Fall colors to fill the hills. The trees on the rocks out in the middle of Kanawha Falls seem to glow as if they were so full of sunshine that it was bursting out from the leaves. The colors of Fall are a flame that enters the eyes and warms the soul against the oncoming night. Enjoy the colorful world while it lasts for soon the flames will burn out leaving only the frozen bones of winter.

Between Two Worlds

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Between Two Worlds” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

A cool breeze drifts across the Kanawha River and brings with it the fresh scent of the rain. It’s odd how thst even though the crystal blue sky only shows a few scant clouds in the West that you can smell the rain before it moves in. The low angle of the sun was hitting the river just right to turn the water above the hydroelectric plant into a mirror. The cormorant was perched on his arched branch soaking in the morning sun.

Image Titled Cormorant In Morning 101119

Not really having a particular agenda for the day allowed me to take full advantage of the peace and quiet. I just sat there gazing onto the depths of the reflections that were only broken by the occasional fallen leaf flow down the river on its trek to the South. This is what it means to be human. To have been endowed by a creator with the ability to appreciate the wonder made by his hand. To be close enough to creation so as to see the beauty in every little grain of sand on the shore and that each one has a number but not so close that the wonderment is lost. It’s this state that gives us the drive to push deeper into the mystery. But at the same time we secretly hope that the mystery never ends. As I continue to be enthralled with colors and textures of the river and the reflections that were laid out before my eyes the movement of the bird’s wings drew my attention as he rper into the air and floated on the breeze. The one thing that we had in common at that moment was that we were both suspended between two worlds.

A Late Summer Break At Kanawha Falls

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Kanawha Falls 82219a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The late August sun pours down on the Kanawha River as my big blue truck comes to a rest under the arching trees. The roar of the falls drowns out the days noise and pushes away all of the pressures of civilization. I watched as the geese flew in and landed on the bare rocks that stand out from the falls. One by one they meander along until they find just the right spot to settle down for a break. It seems that they instinctively know that this place is a fortress to provide isolation from the modern world. I can feel the air flowing from the top of falls as it spills into valley. Occasionally the bird chatter is strong enough to breech the sound of the rushing water giving a contrast to the droning falls. Small flashes of sunlight dance among the ripples on the river’s surface as the minnows dart around in the shallows. A little farther down the banks a trail of smoke rises into the air and travels downstream as a fisherman prepares for an evening of trying to get the one that got away last time.

I wander around taking notice of the odd shapes of driftwood and color variations on the sandstone pebbles until my sense of peace is contented. Before making my way back to the big blue truck I raised my lens for a few shots of the falls so I can bring the peaceful feeling to you.
