The Darkest of Times


Despite the cold, grey, gloom,


light finds a way


to illuminate


that which remains 


open.

  1. Wystarczy parę płomyków słońca, a świat się robi piękniejszy, nawet jesienią. Pozdrawiam.
    Just a few flames sun, and the world is doing beautiful, even in autumn. Yours.

  2. Beautiful images Rosemary - I am happy even in the cold dark winter as long as some of the sunshine gets through in the way that you have shown.

    1. Thank you Rosemary, I find the sun shines in a more intense way in the winter. It lit these dead hydrangea leaves turning them into flaming candles :)

    1. The sun brought these leaves to life, reminding me of glowing candles. Candles for a day of mourning in the U.S. and for all of us as well.

    1. Thank you Lee, I couldn't help but think of the tragedy in the U.S. right now, seeing the sun make its way to these leaves... The curled ones remain dark but the ones that are open, glow. The hard part is to remain open.

  16. These are rare yet truly warm and gorgeous colors for winter :)
    Love the 'gold' in each one of them.
    Great shots!!
    Really an auspicious winter for you Rosemary!

    1. Thank you Ash, I think so much of life depends on us showing up; in our life, for our family, friends, jobs... I try to get outside every day, just to see what I can see. This is what I found today - pretty awesome stuff!
