I return to this view – only a couple hundred meters from our home – again and again. The oak tree leaning over the bicycle path, the white birches catching the light, the ivy growing on the tree trunks: I know it by heart but it’s new every time.
Once in a while it’s great to go back and look at old unedited photographs. Sometimes they are gems waiting to be discovered!
I took this picture, and looking at it on my laptop I thought, “Nah, too misty, and with those dead trees… Let’s throw it out.” Then I looked at it again today, and now I think it’s actually beautiful! Weird, how your perception changes from day to day…
At 6:30 in the morning I hear on the news that there’s a misty start of the day. I jump out of bed and check the window: gray, not much visibility. “I have to get up now,” I tell my husband, “This will be a perfect day!” And it is…
… catches the best light on a foggy morning!
When other trees are already donning their spring greens, the beech tree is still holding on to last year’s leaves. I want to tell him – and, perhaps, myself as well – “Let go of the past. Open yourself for new opportunities.” I hope that soon the beech tree will embrace the fresh green colors of spring as well!
This week we are on holiday from our own home, discovering the beauty of nature around us. Here, I can just picture the fairies bathing!
