Trapped in their own world, these little Birch branches "wait out" the icy conditions with an amazing combination of sunlight and bitter cold air.
The little "orbs" you might see floating around in the darkened background are actually snowflakes reflecting the sun as they fall. That, in itself, was a mind-blowing experience as I spun around in a whimsical state!
What an amazing and inspirational afternoon it was on Christmas Eve ,when we arrived at Amy's house in Vermont.
Finally, my thanks to everyone for being so kind - I am trying to get "back on track" with my posts and, more importantly, my visits of your blogs, all the while plodding alongas I learn my new camera. I hope you like these fledgling shots that I have been presenting ...my love to you all!

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
