Snow's Arabesque in Canyon at Day Rise
Light dusting of snow! in Canyon, before daylight has risen. Cloud hovers in the redwood valley. It's a beautiful, illuminated world in the dark.
Snow on green leafs - soft view to west. Sky is gray and bed is warm. Snow on oak tree to east is vivid beautiful dark-light contrast. Rain on the roof.
O my goodness - arabesqued, infinite white caps on green forested valley before eliciting the relaxation response cloud atop ridge.
First ridge to east is a Scottish moor with snow. Second ridge with green growth has snow contrasted. Third rippling mountain ridge is not there ~ in clouds.
Canyon kids walk through this unfamiliar snowy world. Arabesque ridge has become subtle - snow melting quickly - change is afoot.
Redwood ridge is back in nuanced sight. Redwoods carry no snow, trees in between - arabesque, shimmery bubbles of green white. Cloud intermingles in rich, fluid movement.
Light show with landscape - pretty wild and beautiful - is here on the ridge in Canyon, California, these mornings.
Sun just came out for the first time. Redwood ridge is illuminated green & golden, ~ light clouds are drifting through. Variety & color emerge - green greetings.
Snow is on the ground - unusual for Canyon - still. It's beautiful. Working on my book ...
