The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Fern Shadow on Birch Tree
We planted three of these birch trees in 1996.
Only supposed to grow to 20'...hah...at this
point they are 30'+...guess it's all that rain?
Over time I have planted a variety of ferns
at the base and nearby these lovely trees.
It looks lovely.

This is so cool! Great textures and shapes, and I like the near-absence of color.

Lovely picture there today - I love the bark of a birch tree.

That's very clever, with the fern shadow. I like it!
