Winter Color: Lost & Found
We headed out on this December day in search of color. I love a mission, and the boys just love to get down to the river, turn rocks over, search for treasure.
I was astonished as I came over the levy to see this: an American White Pelican cruising through the river. He was moving very quickly across, and stayed long enough for me to take some great photos. I didn't have any idea we'd see pelican here.
We couldn't even see his black wings until he took off.
Look at how his feathers nearly touch the surface of the water as he flies. He flew back upstream where I saw in the distance a few of his friends. Absolutely majestic. It was such a treat for us!
The temperatures weren't awful, but time to zip up!
Found: a curiosity and longing for adventure
Lost: the days of golden-brilliant Autumn
Found: the color, the art of Winter
The nakedness of Winter trees shines a spotlight on the lingering seedpods.
Lost: boredom of a Winter afternoon
Found: smiles all around
