Just for fun this week, Cee’s asking us to share a photo or photos of a sunset, sunrise, or a night shot.  One wonderful thing about an iPhone (or other smartphone) is that I never have to miss a shot, even on a walk in the park.

How can it be almost the middle of June (and the half-way point of 2016) already?  Time is zipping by much too quickly. It’s also Friday again, time for the Weekly Photo Challenge.  A few mornings ago, I went on my usual walk through the park.  It was a wet morning and all the spider webs were highlighted by diamond drops of rain.  I can’t resist them and it’s pure pleasure to come upon a prairie filled with these usual unseen beauties.  This also the first of the shots from the walk I wrote about that had all of you asking for photos.  🙂  Possess your souls in patience and all will be revealed.  In the meantime, happy Friday and have a marvel-filled weekend.

I woke to a fog-wrapped morning, damp and chill.  A fortifying breakfast, some time on the computer and I grabbed my iPad heading out for some solitary walking time.  The trail in the nature preserve felt as damp as if it had rained, the silence broken only by the muted calling of various birds, the dampness making the leaves soft enough to allow me to imagine myself an Indian treading soundlessly along the trail.  Ghostly figures of ducks inhabited the lakes, their bottoms popping comically into the grey air as they ate their fast food breakfasts.  Moisture coalesced enough to rain on me and I could feel my hair curling as I walked.  A lovely feeling of solitude wrapped me as closely as did the fog and reveling in it, I almost missed the spider web bejeweled with diamond droplets, a necklace fit for a queen.  Priceless.
