Awaiting Easter

This vision of April Soft Redbud appeared on a journey some years ago to the Hocking Hills of Ohio, on a painterly day veiled in diaphanous morning mist. I turned off the highway onto a small back road which led to a hidden world of beauty. So close to civilization, and yet my own discovery. You could hear the peacefulness in the drops of dew.

Horses grazed in a nearby pasture. One in particular came and stood patiently for me to get a picture. Needing to be brushed and dried with a towel, but still so cute. I simply named this one "Friend."

May everyone here have a Happy and Blessed Easter!

So glad to see you posting again, missed your voice on the blogs :-)

I love what you do with your photos, the budding tree looks amazing I love seeing the enlarged version and just pouring over the details. Nothing like finding a little piece of heaven and a horse to share the moment with makes it perfect.

Have a wonderful Easter

Thank you for your kind comments on my various posts :-) The picture that reminds you of Mapleside Farms is a shot my sister Kellie took of our family farmlands, you can see for miles. And I have no clue what to call the Line & Shape abstract, chaos maybe :-)

By the way my sister Kellie was so moved by your comments on her blog, she hardly knew what to say. Thank you for encouraging her so.

And Happy Easter to you.
The Redbud and Horse are both very spring like looking. I guess it is spring here as it is snowing heavily and at 27 degrees even feels cold

Lovely pictures, they really do have a feeling of spring.
Thanks for the lovely encouraging comments on my blog.
I enjoyed my visit to your site.

Good morning CC. The mist gives your pictures such a gentle push. What a nice way to start ones day.

Your photographs are incredible! I'm so glad my sister pointed me to your website. I especially love the "Here Comes the Sun" picture. I have always loved photography but need to work on the technical side of things. Thanks so much for your kind words about my "Worn Away" blog entry. The words mean so much to you at the time, but then you wonder once you put them out there whether they will mean anything to anyone else. Thanks again & I look forward to more of your photographs. Blessing.
