“Gold Among the Pines”
“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”
― Jack Kerouac
I was looking for a non-typical photo for this Christmas Day and decided on this image I made last week. A beautifully lit beach tree, surrounded by a blanket of fresh fallen snow and framed by pine trees. It’s a simple composition that brings a feeling of peace and wonder to me when I look at it. The leaves fairly shimmered when the scant sunlight hit them, making the tree glow against the darker background. I’m enjoying a calm and relaxed Christmas Day with my family. My children are all home for a few days, a simple gift that I’m truly enjoying.
