Summer Morning

The play of light in the early morning is today's eye candy. The fog has burned off to reveal bright blue skies. The creek and bridge are still in shadow. You can see the reflection of the sunlight in the creek water but everything is still in shadows.

The path to the steps that lead down to the beach shows the sun's steady progress into the compound, providing a contrast of shadow and light.

Looking down on our private beach, the river is as smooth as glass.

Standing at the top of the steps leading down to the river. The compound is still in shadow but the sun is fast approaching.

Standing in the shadow, looking at the river, I am struck by how mirror like both the river and creek are this morning. Their smooth surfaces belie the downhill flow to the ocean.

A morning for enjoying life's little pleasures as the little cabin by the creek in the redwoods greets the sun.
