The Angel of Versailles

The Angel of Versailles

Although the Bible shows us that angels are only males, as humans we have described anyone that has very positive attributes as "angels." whether male or female, child or adult. We even assign angel status to our loved ones who have passed on, even though we are told that angels are separate creatu...

Fall is on the horizon, but my Muse was really feeling winter. I just tag along and we get things done.

Nesting

Nesting

I have always been fascinated by storks, especially in their big nests of sticks. In my birthplace they build their nests on the tops of big chimneys. The pops of red against the stark white are delightful, I think. Don't you?

Reflection of Serenity

Reflection of Serenity

There is nothing more serene than nature, especially near water. The reflection of this tree in the water near a lake seemed an appropriate place from which the birds could take flight.

Idyll

Idyll

The countryside is full of idyllic places where your Spirit can wander. The songs of the birds and the sound of the wind rustling through the grass is music enough to calm the soul before returning to the hectic business of life.

Bird on a Wire (Bird on a Wire Series I)

This was the first in my Bird on a Wire series, using a photo captured on a photo scavenger hunt assignment. I sat for a good half hour just listening to this beautiful bird sing, and sing, and sing. I just love how she sat under the transformer to shade herself from the evening sun.
