“A Good Morning”

“The new day greets me with bright sunshine, long shadows, and a bite in the air to remind me that winter is not yet concluded.” – Ed Lehming

I continue in my morning walks, still not tiring of the wonders the forest has to offer me. Each day just feels ‘fresh’. Some days are fresher than others; even though we have entered March and there has been a brief respite in chilly days, I think winter is not quite done with us. Despite a brief late February thaw, snow remains plentiful and cold nights leave a distinct chill in the morning air, it has not made me less eager to be outdoors and enjoying my mornings.

The scene above has become something I really look forward to, be it mild or cold. The slowly rising sun still remains low enough in the sky to provide me with a soft, diffused light, but bright and cheerful as it beams between the trees. I also find it creates interesting highlights on distant objects, like the small grove of beech trees here.

I’m still enjoying the conversion of my photos to a more painterly look and I’m looking forward to actually painting them once my skill and comfort level in that medium improve.

  1. Your photos could hang on my wall, Ed. Beautiful! Yes, the painterly look. I often walk many of the same routes, yet my days also feel “fresh.” Thank you for sharing your ‘Good Morning.’
