This frosty leaf was on the orchard floor this morning. Gently touched by the rising sun it was a vision of stillness, fragility and ephemeral beauty.
And it has absolutely nothing in common with the wild chaos of my family’s life that exists around it.
In fact I’m pretty sure a dog ran it over at top speed as soon as I was done snapping these pictures.
While our life seems to be a whirlwind hovering just this side of insanity, it’s good to know I can always find an oasis of calm through the lens of a camera.
