Green Day

I ran away a week or so ago to see what could be seen and capture what could be captured. Heading west toward favorite wild areas and Wilson Dam, I enjoyed several days of isolated bliss snapping photos of a variety of things. Upon arriving back to the City House and downloading my gems I discovered most of my favorite shots were of things green. The old Eastern Red Cedar above was a first favorite years ago when it was immortalized by my Sony Cybershot 5.0 digital camera. Comparing the two shots should be fun.

Green grasses protect the Canada Geese at Joe Wheeler State Park.

Green trees and green shrubs hug the bank along greenish waters.

A green trail beckons.

Green moss glows along the riverside.

Green moss accentuates a shoreline rock.

A dead tree cascading over a cliff side adorned with greenery.

Back home again, the shagbark hickory's green leaves are beginning to turn gold, catching fire in the sunset. This is the beginning of the Golden Tree Hour at our lake house. Cheers, everyone.

Green is the colour of the heart centre. Through accepting Nature, you are embracing your own personal Nature. Your heart is growing and opening. Newness excites. You are Alive and Living Life. And through these feelings, you are receiving a Golden Moment where you are in touch with your Soul.

I didn't know there was an eastern red cedar. How cool to have a corresponding and versatile tree on both sides of the continent.

I forgot to tell you that I love your new blog look! It fits perfectly! I also recognized that bridge at Wilson Dam- I really like that trail bridge.
