Emerging Life In Spring 2021

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Emerging Life 33021” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

Even as the cold wind stirs and fills the skies with snowflakes new life continues to grow in my forest. The green leaves have heard the call of the sun’s golden voice and they refuse to be put back to sleep. The time of doing has come and the job of the trees is catch the new light. April showers will be here soon and the light empowers the forest to soak up the water and cast it back to the sky through their leaves. So the leaves must open in their season. Even with the tiniest of green returning to my world I somehow feel renewed myself. It’s time to shake off the stale air of the indoors and smell the fresh earth after the rain. And to look with childlike wonderment at the small things as they go about unencumbered by the desires of mankind. The green buds and the full leaves that follow are one of my favorite markers on my natural calendar. Soon I should start seeing the minnows in my creek and the return of the Heron that silently strolls through its shoals. The heart awakens with the mountains!

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Announcement 2.0

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.

A Few Minutes Of Forest Tranquility

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Crimson Archway 113020” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The forest is silent as the mists softly settle on sparse leaves. The remanent leaves of the young trees stand out like glistening gems against the bland background of the sleeping mountains. The falling mists are cool on my skin and I can detect the faint smell of the fresh earth coming up through the leaves. Somewhere in the canopy a fairdiddle barks his displeasure at my presence. Looking up through the bare limbs I notice the shaking of a bushy tail. He thinks he’s well hidden. When I sit still enough for long enough the tufted titmouse will come and forage the bushes. I remember when one in particular became fascinated with the laces of my boots while I was on my deer stand. He kept tugging at the ends without realizing he was perched on my leg. He would have kept it up until he untied it if I hadn’t snickered. I take the time to notice how water collects on the leaves until it’s heavy enough to roll down. It’s just the beginning of December on the day I took the photo but I’m already noticing changes to certain buds that foretell the upcoming late season blooms. There are certain flowers that only bloom in late fall and climatic winter. Life is in constant change. If things are not changing they are dead. I take a deep breath and enjoy the scent of the forest once more to hold the tranquility in my spirit and its time to walk back to the big blue truck and move on to my next destination.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Finding Providence On A Gray Day

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Watercolors 113020a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The distant thunder of the CSX line on the opposite side of the river echoes throughout the Kanawha Valley. The pristine white snow has given way to the typical cold rain of late Fall. Officially, Winter is not for another two weeks and yet the damp chill of the oncoming season already grips my bones. “It’s only a small thing that’s common to all of mankind” I tell myself as I search for the wonderment of creation that certainly exists in this place. Then I spotted the bright leaves of a sweet gum seedling. The bold colors stand out against a gray climate in total defiance of the melancholy weather. The cheer of the eyes brings enough joy to the heart that the warmth of a touched soul drives out the previous chill. It seems that the Good Lord himself has saw it fit to paint a warm flame into nature’s canvas. The valiant sprout burns with vibrant life in spite of the long nights and cold days. The gentle flame from God’s palette was enough to return hope to day and remind me that brighter days are returning soon. For the new light is born on the first day of winter and sorrow is always delivered with hope. It really just depends on what you choose to focus on.

Stay positive when things look dark and trust in providence.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
