Light and Shadows


We have had 2 days of sun- and although it doesn't rise up very high in the sky and though it is still frigid outside it is still lovely to see. We have seen bald eagles circling in the sky, and an enormous blue heron rising up out of the melting ice of a small pond. The solstice has passed and each day is now a few moments longer. The light is a silvery metallic and slants across the land at strange angles, pulling deep blue shadows behind it. I am floating between one place and another, dipping into the shadows, reaching for the light. Waiting to see what the new year will bring, trying to hold on to the magic.....

This photo is really fabulous - and I love the phrase about the blue shadows being pulled along ... your writing is gorgeous.
