COLD, BLUE, MORNING LIGHT

NATURE APPEARS TO BE SLEEPING

SUN ENLIVENS ALL

Thomas Merton said it well: “..I am absorbed in the lovely blue and mauve shadows on the snow and the indescribably delicate color of the sunlit patches under the trees.All the life and color of the landscape is in the snow and sky” (Writings on Nature, Thomas Merton 2003)

  1. Thanks Phil. You are up early, indeed. I like the second photo best. Tranquil. My friends took an Elderhostel in KY last fall… on Thomas Merton. I have read some about him/writings… but memory fails me. I will need to go to the library again.

    Regards

    Linda
