The Caged Lily

Photography Lesson: Never leave your camera at home, even when you are just walking to the Post Office.

I was walking to the post office to mail a couple of poster tubes. On my way home I spotted this beauty trapped between the glass and the window bars of an antique store. A glorious struggle to break free in the early morning sun.  The reflection of the Lily in the glass created the lovely bokeh effect colors.

Shoot, Shoot, Shoot and then Shoot again… photographers your newest capture awaits.

Ice Coated Branches Sprout Frost Shavings

Nature sings of Love to open Hearts with a melody that heals the Soul. ~ Lee Hiller

Are these my last photos of winter this March in Hot Springs National Park?  I am not sure if Nature has yet to speak her last freezing word as we near spring. Each ice storm transforms the Forest bending branches and toppling Trees.  Nature re-sculpts her own art with each new weather event.  Sun and rain will soon bring glorious Wildflowers and Butterflies.

During the late winter storm last week the ice coated branches sprouted frost shavings. As the breeze caressed the branches they would fall like a light flurry of snow. They reminded me of of the metal shavings in my childhood magnet set.  I found them on the east side of North Mountain on two different trail.  Is it caused by the morning sun?  Nature always has something new which inspires investigation and education.

Another Wave of Ice and Snow in Hot Springs National Park

Each note of Nature’s symphony renews my Soul. ~ Lee Hiller

Winter made another visit to Hot Springs, Arkansas.  The have open Cherry Blossoms froze and tiny Sparrows puffed up to hold back the 11 degree F temperature.  As I head up into Hot Springs National Park the ice covering the branches and the trails becomes thicker. Lovely ice jewels hang from evergreen fronds and yet to fall autumn Leaves.

Feb 24-26 2014 First Signs of Spring

In the Forest I see beyond sight to feel the beauty of our Earth. ~ Lee Hiller

I was a bit busy this past week and am late posting these.  Yesterday, March 03 we received another coating of ice and dusting of snow. Sadly this likely killed the early Wildflower Blossoms, Butterflies and Lizards I captured hiking a week ago. The Last week of February 2014 was in the upper 50s but, March roared bringing sub-freezing temperatures (11 degrees F).   Climate change continues to be brutal in Hot Springs National Park.

This preview of Spring feels so long ago…

Love to ALL!
Lee
