Some of the natural lighting at the time of taking the photo and Photoshop help create this colorful image.

Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light.
Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.

   My legacy –
         What will it be?
Flowers in spring,
The cuckoo in summer,
And the crimson maples

     Of autumn …

Signs Of Spring In The Desert   2 comments

Signs Of Spring In The Desert — Photo Essay by kenne

Desert Song

I thirst
for your rivers
your rippling mesas of sand
gold mirrors
on your sinuous curves

I thirst
for the saguaro
for the sweet juice of cactus
in the prickling sweat
of a desert sun

I thirst
for the searing of hot valleys
the bend of shimmer and heat
that bow that arcs the arrow
toward this center, my heart

I thirst
for the bloom, the sweet
languorous smells
this subtle perfume
elusive, as the scuttle of desert life

I thirst
for this tallest, deepest night
of stars and silence
when the moon is only a moon
silvering this light

— Ruth Housman

“It is easier to tell a person what life is not, rather than to tell them what it is. A child understands weeds that grow from lack of attention, in a garden. However, it is hard to explain the wildflowers that one gardener calls weeds, and another considers beautiful ground cover.”

— Shannon L. Alder

 

Suddenly It’s Spring . . . Again   3 comments

Sweetwater Trail Wasson Peak“Suddenly It’s Spring” — Image by kenne

Suddenly it’s spring
Colors of winter
Turning into yesterday’s
Dark inner soul.

Suddenly it’s spring
Winter’s fading landscape
Exploding bright colors
Nature’s paint by numbers.

Suddenly it’s spring
Renewing old dreams
My wanderlust drifting
Opened to the sky.

Suddenly it’s spring
Nature’s voices sing
Awaken longing spirits
Laced with poetry.

Suddenly it’s spring
Tamed love burns
Attracted by fire colors
A virgin again.

Suddenly it’s spring
Fresh silky skin
Milk and honey
Luring new loves.

Suddenly it’s spring . . . again.
