Streams of Light

Streamers of light pouring through the trees at the park this morning.

Sunlight was pouring through the trees at Colliery Dam Park this morning.  The ground was steaming and the light and steam coalesced to create streamers of reflected light!

More streamers.

It was a brilliant morning, so bright, I should have put the polarizing lens back over the zoom to cut the glare!

But it was wonderful, as beautiful as I find the light here in the fall – there is something about a brilliantly clear, sunny day.

Even with the glare – a perfect reflection of a small eco-system on the dead stump.

We have had so much rain lately that the sun felt like a benediction as we walked through the lights and shadows of the park.

If only every morning started with so much beauty.

There was no wind this morning.  The lakes at Colliery Park were still and perfectly reflective.  They mirrored their edges and surrounding with exquisite accuracy.

There were many people enjoying the park this morning.  One gentleman whom we spoke with had been walking this park for over 60 years and knew every pathway well.  I hope that I am still walking like that when I am his age!

Beautifully mirrored reflections.

Hamish – showing just how impressed he was by the camera pointed at him!

Sara, a young friend of mine, came into the store this week to show me the sweater she had just finished for her son.  It was my “Sailor Rib” pattern and Hamish, while a reluctant model, looked great in the heathered green wool his mother had knit the sweater in!

Tamera modeling.

Tamera on the other hand was much more enthusiastic in her efforts at modeling this morning.  She arrived bright and early and looked fabulous!  She made the Paper Bag Princess Toque (pattern under construction) look fabulous!

Happy Knitting and Walking
