Morning Thanks

Garrison Keillor once said we'd all be better off if we all started the day by giving thanks for just one thing. I'll try.

Saturday Morning Catch


Another somewhat non-descript dawn this Saturday, but I found a new place to shoot--quite a ways away, but there's some beautiful yawning country out there at the dead end of a low-maintenance road, a place that's full of possibilities, the kind of place to which I'll certainly return.

There's even some prairie up there, long grass I had to wade through, like water, full of wild flowers. I think this shot--above--is was today's trophy, if there is one. That blurry barbed wire back there only enhances the tenuous glory of the black-eyed susan or rosinweed or whatever that graceful beauty is. If you look close, a little bee swoops like a P-38, just beneath left-most petal of the left-most blossom.
It's a great place--360 degree turn and not a confinement in sight. That's a blessing, too.

A wonderful discovery.
