A Foggy Morning Of Adventures Past

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Willows And Fog 2620” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

If not for the roar of Kanawha Falls the river would be completely lost in the thick winter fog. The big blue truck glides to a stop along the muddy shoreline below the hydroelectric plant. The raindrops drum steadily against the metal skin of the truck as I set the brakes and hop out to catch the willows silhouetted in the foggy sunrise. The mists rise from the falls and create a wall of mystery in the background. As a child I loved to play in the fog. My young imagination filled the fog with primeval creatures like dinosaurs and wooly mammoths. Legendary beasts roamed the fields and forests cloaked in heavy mists. In the days before Link and Zelda adventure was found wandering through enchanted lands when the fog shielded my eyes from the mundane. Even today I can imagine the coils of a prehistoric serpent sliding silently through the water. With a dead branch for a spear and an innertube powered slingshot I hunted these beasts back into extinction. As I got older the evening fog served as a perfect backdrop for a game of kick the can at twilight.

Even today I’m resisting the urge to don my rain gear and set off into the mists in search of adventure. But the ticking of a clock beckons me deeper into adulthood and I climb back aboard the big blue truck and return to highway with only the image in my lens to fuel a few daydreams. Childhood it seems is toughest on those that are only young at heart.

The Return Of Daylight

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Wading Willows 2019” and is available for purchase by following the instructions at the bottom of the page.

The return of the evening sun brings a sigh of relief to my spirit. Even though the difference is artificial, the simple act of setting a clock can make a major difference in the quality of life. It’s not just an extra hour of light but an extra hour of living. Most people who have a day job fill their morning with the obligations of maintaining their jobs. Lunches are packed, attire is selected, pets are settled for the day and children are shuffled off to schools or day care. There’s very little time left to enjoy the light before being sequestered in front of a computer screen. But today I won the race against the shadows and made it home before the darkness was able to touch my driveway. I even had time to stop and check on my wading willows at Kanawha Falls. Bearing the marks of the recent high water gave them the appearance of children who had been playing in the mud. As a bonus I was also able to enjoy another long awaited ritual that signals the end of winter for me. The first drive home with the windows down. Two Spring activities in one day! Moreover the time change will increase the opportunity for a sunrise shot or two over the next few weeks. I was able to get several shots of different things while at Kanawha Falls and I’ll be posting them separately. But for now the combination of daylight, warm weather and the peaceful sounds of the Kanawha River lapping at the shore was both soothing and reinvigorating at the same time.
