“Sunshine Grove” – Hermon, Ontario

“Sunshine Grove- Hermon, Ontario

“Rather than crying and  craving for those who left our path during dark moments of our life, let’s spend some time to thank those who stood and helped us to pass those dark paths.”
― Nehali Lalwani

This image was made on a somewhat foggy morning. As the fog dissipated I came across this scene. Amidst a damp low area, filled with spruce and hemlock, stands a small grove of silver birch. The sun streaming through the branches, lighting up the forest floor in glowing bands and reflecting off the shiny bark made it seem like a magical place. Literally, a light among the darkness. I sat here for quite some time, on the log in the foreground, just enjoying the light and sense of peace this place brought me.

“Silver Web” – Marble Lake

“Silver Web” - Marble Lake

Another early morning image. It’s the time of year when nights get cool and the mornings are damp and misty. Dew clings to everything and the low rising sun lights up the world in silvers and golds. Spider webs that go unnoticed during the day shine with water droplets that appear like silver threads.

I noticed this web in a tree near our camper and the light was just right to reveal the fine details of this particular spider’s work. The curves and arches in the web really jump out, though it appears this web may be in need of some work.
