Like a Chandelier


 stepping onto a lakeshore beach
steeped in morning shade
dappled in morning light
song of pouring creek
spring bush laden with newborn buds
shinning
lit up
like a crystal chandelier
i felt as though i stepped into mystical magical realm
yes
that would be planet earth

Early Spring in Montana

  14. Mother Nature's chandeliers sparkle in the sun. We build from crystal.
    Beautiful.

    Thanks for adding the Big picture to put the icy bush in perspective. I'd hoped it wasn't still that wintery even in Montana.

  42. I am late to the party this time around, but that does not diminish my appreciation for your captures of this fleeting seasonal wonder. It reminds me of something that would inspire Tim Burton: a little eerie, yet whimsical and inviting, too. Beautiful!

  49. Guten Morgen Tammie,

    das ist absolut wundervoll und die Vorstellung, es wäre ein Kronleuchter ist absolut bezaubernd und erinnert mich an Hans Christian Andersen Märchenwelt - es ist so schön, diese Gabe sich zu bewahren, diesen besonderen Blick für das Magische. Deine Bilder und deine Worte zeigen, wie gut du es kannst.

    alles Liebe für dich
