The Storm Ended Just Before Sunset

A Wish For Aspens II

A Wish For Aspens II

Yesterday it rained right up until sunset when the sun appeared, blessing the land with perfect golden light. There were fresh puddles at the curb and leaves were turning colorful.

    I love them all. But of course… “A Wish For Aspens” is my favourite here.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Ron.

  8. What a beautiful shot. I feel as if I could walk into the picture and feel the air and the trees around me. The color is wonderful and the dampness familiar.

  17. Wow, so lovely! I love A Wish For Aspens, a magical moment just before sunset.

    I’ve been terribly busy and I missed so many of your wonderful photos. Today I’m so delighted.

    Happy holidays, Ron!

    • Thank you Melisa. I hope you have a chance to catch up on what I have been doing in Houston for the last month or so.

      Happy holidays.

  18. Ron, I haven’t been on WP much lately. I saw a lot of your earlier people photos and after a quick look now see that you have multiple photographic talents. If you post photos to Facebook, please connect up with me there (I concentrate my efforts there now and 2nd post on WP every alternate day)

    December 25, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    • I will look you up. The problem with fb is they can use your photos without paying for them.

      December 26, 2013 at 8:57 am

  19. Happy holidays to you too, Ron!

    December 26, 2013 at 5:36 am
