Amazing grays

The tale of the vanished horizon
The tale of the vanished horizon

In the morning, the sky melts into the ocean and the ocean vaporizes up to the sky.
The horizon has vanished.
A minimalist gray palette.

A break in the clouds
A break in the clouds

In the evening, a blade of pale blue brings back the boundary.
Sunlight floods the horizon.
A rich gray palette.

Walking among the redwoods

Plants growing on a fallen redwood
Hanging garden

A fallen redwood becomes the substrate for new growth: moss, fern, redwood sorrel, trees.


 

A redwood's root reaches for the ground
Reaching for the ground

A young redwood growing on the root end of the trunk of a fallen one has stretched its root like an arm to reach the ground.

My awed silence pays homage to nature’s resilience.
