If there was ever a day to get out and enjoy the outdoors, yesterday was it. Abundant sunshine! Winter may not be done with us yet, but spring is certainly coming. Current conditions are clear and calm with temps in the mid 30s.
The lodge was part of the forest, part of the mountain. I marveled at the two pieces of wood staring at each other. Both were in a different phase of life. One was thriving with green needles spread wide; the other looked on with a refined demeanor. How similar they both were, sentinels of the mountain; and yet, they couldn't be more different.
The random thought danced around in my head for a little while longer. A composition came into mind. I released the shutter - storing the thought forever.
"The greatest wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more."
