Jan 20- Look I know it was 61F yesterday...

but getting ready to bloom in mid January in Kansas is not a good game plan even if you are sited in a sheltered southern exposure!

White Lady

Kill Creek Park. Sycamores. The sky was really intense but I boosted the saturation to bring out the contrast between the trees and the sky.

From Kill Creek Park, East of Lawrence on K-10. The sky was really intense and I was fortunate to have a polarizing filter to provide the maximum contrast between the sky and the moon.

Winter Leaves

I'm in one of those Photo a day challenges for 2013 so since today is not a great photography day decided to include a poem with my photo-

Walking along the shore I found the remains of a pool,
Leaves black and blue pressed into the mud.
The mud held in the hand of the lake's ancient marl.
Might be fossils some day these leaves,
Their skeletal substance long gone,
Slight imprints examined and cataloged, a supporting datum
In some argument about a mass extinction.
But most likely not, but swept away in the growth of time and then
Subsumed by the Earth's great snake-
From which nothing that was, can really be recovered.
