Finding Treasure (12 Photos)

Today (yesterday to you) found me with my macro lense and camera, winter coat and hat, knee pads, and a determination to get some phenomenal shots, no matter what! And I did! I proceeded to go outside and not even hesitating, I was crawling in the mud. Even though I had knee pads on, my pants got soaked. Now, it was cold out, being only in the 30’s but did I care? Did I go back in the house? No. Why?

What I saw I couldn’t believe. And I don’t think you will either. I was eye ball to grass blade and taking photos of the remaining snow.

I had my nose pressed in my evergreen ground cover taking shots on my belly.

For those I was laying on our front sidewalk, and for the others where I was in mud, kneeling in child pose (Yoga) in order to get as close as possible to what I was seeing.

Another shot is of my lavender with drops of water on her, and for that, I was kneeling in my Rose garden deep in mulch.

I entered a majickal world … One that is right out in my backyard and did not even know existed until today._MG_4612 copy

And this is the majick in all of this … I did not plan on doing this today. I just up and decided I will find something to show all of you and in doing so, I stumbled upon Treasure.

As I was taking these photographs, I began to sense a reverence for the Moment I was photographying. Even though it has been an exceedingly hard winter, Mother has given me the privilege to document Her final retreat of her Winter Freeze. And so I present to you, the Gift Mother Gave to me yesterday  …

    1. Aw, Margaret Rose, thank you. If you could see the barren, brown, ugly muddy landscape right now, it is a miracle I found what I did. (sigh) Spring is taking forever to get here this year! %^#$ Yep, that’s right! I know that word too!!! LOL

    1. Fascinating is not the word! I could not believe what I saw. I could gaze into the ice crystals in of themselves to see the swirling patterns. What a mind blower to discover things we just take for granted like snow and ice. Have a good day, Mom. Love, Amy

    1. Lor, I still stare at these photographs and I am stunned. I see symbols and shapes in the ice and the way everything IS, is so graceful and powerful at the same time. Mother Nature is THE greatest Artist and I am just the humble photographer who has the honor of documenting Her Work. Bless you today!!! Love, Amy
