blowing in the wind
A bit tough to catch a shot when the breeze keeps tossing the subject around. But it’s a relief to discover that shooting in RAW finally comes closer to capturing the true colors in the red spectrum. Seemed as though the following peony kept showing up more in the magenta tones when jpeg was doing the processing for me……Then I’ve always been in love with the California poppies, but I’ve never been able to capture their glow when the sun shines…… (though I do try)I miss the California fields this time of year when they are literally covered with the orange poppies and purple lupine…Sorry, I have no lupine to show and the grape hyacinths have already wilted.But the breeze had this delicate petal waving at me….
I believe there is something of the divine mystery in everything that exists. We can see it sparkle in a sunflower or a poppy. We sense more of the unfathomable mystery in a butterfly that flutters from a twig–or in a goldfish swimming in a bowl. But we are closest to God in our own soul. Only there can we become one with the greatest mystery of life. In truth, at very rare moments we can experience that we ourselves are that divine mystery.
