First rays of the sun catching the leaves of a small Japanese Maple
The camera doesn't quite capture this exquisite early morning tableau. We were having coffee and tea on the deck when my wife said "look at that" pointing to the Japanese maple, poppies, petunias, lillies, lobelia and calla. The early morning sun had just risen enough to light this small patch of the garden and presented a quickly changing spotlight. My wife said she was affected by the previously mentioned movie "The Impressionists" and of Monet seeking to capture the changing light. She said she sees the garden in a new way - always aware of the quality of light. I remain fairly obtuse unless things are pointed out to me or the beauty is so obvious that no one can miss it.
