Slipping on my mud boots is still an everyday occurrence if I want to go for a walk in the woods. Even thought the sun is out, the recent wet weather has left everything muddy. Since I've been missing the sun, due to overcast and gloomy skies, I decided to look for light as I trekked through the woods. I knew there would patches of light filtering through the tall trees. I only had to keep my eyes open and find them.
When I'm out walking, I'm always looking for something unusual, either in shape or color. I looked up and there was light creating shadows on this spiny seed ball of the American Sycamore tree. The color is ordinary, the shape is ordinary, but add the light and you have a little bit of beauty in the rather dull winter woods
I'm fascinated by the curlicues that wandering vines make. It's like this little vine is growing in circles searching for something to cling to.
I found a little light dancing on the creek water. I can never take enough pictures of water. I love the movement caused by ripples and the sparkles of the sun.
This fading leaf stuck on a sticker vine looks almost transparent as the sun shines through it. It reminds me of thin tissue paper.
More often than not, I'm looking down. I tread lightly trying not to disturb nature's beauty. This pretty moss that clings to rocks is only about 1/2" tall. It seems to really be loving the wet weather!
I hope you've enjoyed a little nature walk with me. I'm linking up for the first time with Photo Walk Wednesday. I've recently found this group at LAF Custom Designs. I think it will be inspiring and interesting to see what others see as they Walk and Click! Stop by Lissa's blog and check out the other links and join us if you can!
