Movement in Stillness
is the Path of Peace
How I managed to get this shot, I do not know. I believe, however, Lady Luck was on my side! It was cold, bitterly cold and windy. Standing on a plastic chair that was sinking in the mud, I had to balance to stay upright on a wobbly chair and at the same time get my camera as steady as possible. Not only that, I had to wait for a lull in the wind.
I know my talents are good, yet I do have my limits. Knowing this being no fool, I flipped my camera on AF because I was having a heck of a time staying on that chair all the while waiting for the wind to stop. My teeth were chattering from cold, another distraction that I had to stop in order to get my breath stilled. The moment, and I mean the moment the wind lulled I focused in on this image and pressed the shutter button several times. This image is of one tiny tiny tiny (get the picture? LOL) Maple Tree Leaf Bud that is just starting to sprout, showing the tiny tiny tiny beginnings of leaves.
After this brief shoot, I said, “enough” and went inside the house to thaw out. (smile)
