Little drops of light

31 03 2012

So the rain did eventually stop. And when it did, the trees dripped.

And when they gave up their water as little drops, the drops themselves would not give up the light they had captured. They were like little light bulbs shining at the ends of each needle. Tonight was “Earth Hour” and we turned off all the lights for an hour. It was as if the trees were reflecting the free light while it lasted, making the world a brighter place for just a while.

In a reflective mood

We had a cold snap in the Lower Mainland a couple of weeks ago. I took a few photos, but forgot to post any.

I picked this one because of all the textures. The translucent ice, the trees, the reflections in the still water.
