What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?
E. M. Forster
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
This photograph was taken this morning, January 13, 2013....an amazing winter dawn in the Pacific Northwest. I woke up early and after peeking through the window blinds, literally threw a coat over my nightgown, leapt into my boots, grabbed my camera, stuffed extra batteries in my pocket and RAN out the door. I normally walk up our narrow gravel road, but knew that if I didn't hurry, the gorgeous coral would be gone, so drove my car up the private gravel drive, head sticking out the driver's side window to see....because the windshield was iced over...guffaw! This gave me one heck of a frozen head, but I just didn't care. I jumped out of the car and started taking pictures of lenticular clouds over Mt. Rainier, the frosty fields, the deliciously freezing cold morning, and a coral and gold sky. After a bit I got into the car to warm up and noticed the patterns of ice melting on the windshield and other places where the crystals were still formed. Truly in a state of bliss by now, I started taking pictures of and through the melting ice on the windshield. It was just for fun, and I never dreamed that I would love the results so much.
This morning was like a lovely dream...and this photo is the perfect illustration of what it felt like to me. Hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I did in capturing that magical moment.
