Shade and Light - A Summer Lesson

Summer morning offers this early riser a perfect chance to practice my new hobby of photography. I am studying light and shade. Come and share this poetic adventure...

Lingering Shadows

Hiding in the dark shadows of the forest,
Night waits for the sun to pass by
On its journey through the sky.
Dawn with its searching light,
Lingers long in the treetops.

Morning Tiptoes to My Door

Daybreak and sunlight;
Morning stealthily slips past the night,
Finding woodland pathways...
Tiptoeing down the hill,
Spilling petals of light-
Golden blossoms of bright.

Through My Window

Shade is
My home beneath the trees...
A morning whisper left by the night
In the cooling summer breeze.
.

In Closing

hello Judy Ellen, I must take 50 photos to get the one I want for my poem LOL... but thank goodness I can delete the unwanted ones - not like the days of old and being afraid to waste film...!
Mike has been so great teaching me- but with two jobs he is so busy that often I venture out and just try hit or miss and must admit I love the adventure and fun of it...:0) thanks Judy Ellen...
