Cee’s Weekly Photo Challenge is Dark and Light. I took this photo on Decembers last day at sunrise. The Tuscarawas River was running high and swift. This ice bauble formed as water lapped upon the swamped grass bank. Clear waters are transparent to the underlying bank while the bauble captures morning’s first rays.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:23-25 NIV

Waiting for the right wind an knowing when to let go is hard to do.
My Friday Friend
Last Friday temperatures were setting records in the low 70’s. The next morning snow arrived, so I made one last warm weather hike before overdue cold temps settled in for the season. This little chippy thought the same thing and made good use of its last day out. I’m sure it’s not seen daylight since.
Do you see the facial profile looking at this fly? Warm weather has lingered this year extending the life of creatures. I took this shot a couple of weeks ago when I was supposed to be finishing the garden clean up.
I captured this emerging sunflower in early August. It is slightly cropped. I chose to go Black and White to emphasize texture and contrast. I edit in Picasa.
