“Golden Splendour” – Wendat Pond, Stouffville

“Golden Splendour” - Wendat Pond, Stouffville

“Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.” ― C.S. Lewis

With spring just around the corner, this is the time of year where I go looking for signs of life re-emerging. The light is soft and indirect and casts wonderful shadows. I find myself looking at things differently. Textures, like those in the flowerheads above abound and make for interesting compositions. So, as I wait for signs of green and the first small flowers to appear, I’m happy to have these beautiful sights to satisfy me, as they were last year’s beauties.
