But, like me, the forest desperately
Clings to an ambience of summer.
The brisk morning air sent a shiver through their limbs and set a small stand of old philosophers to speculating about the approaching season.
“It can’t be good.”
“It could be bad.”
“Good or bad, it will come.”
Hitting the snooze button proved a huge mistake this morning. I missed the best part of the sunrise and the fantastic fog had mostly evaporated. Another mistake was rushing out the door carrying only a wide angle lens. I missed several shots that demanded a longer lens.
On the other hand, I did get this massive flock of grackles rising from the marsh, coursing across the horizon in numbers too great to count. Even though the birds are much too small in the frame (they look like specks of dirt) the flock itself becomes a significant element of the landscape.
Had I been there earlier, I would have missed this shot. Had I carried a longer lens the flock of birds could have been an even more impressive component.
Mistakes: I make so many and learn so little. But then, in a civilized world early morning is no time for learning.
