A beautiful sight to behold

Walking down our barn road in summer is like walking through a tunnel. A canopy of sweet gum, oak, hickory casts the old red rock road in shadow. A strong-willed sun will weave a ray through the branches and leaves to shine on a subject like a stage light.

Yesterday, as Jilda and I on our early walk almost needed a flashlight as we traversed the road from the barn to the mailbox. Then about halfway home, I saw moss on a log. The sunlight made the emerald green sheen on the fallen log, vibrate with color. It was a beautiful sight to behold.


  1. The sunshine does put a different light on things. How beautiful that old log is. Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July !

  2. It looks a lot like the mold growing on the steps to my deck because Lake Junebug has been pretty full for weeks.


  3. The Emerald City of Empire?

  4. Dear Rick, isn't life wonderfully full of surprises--like the moss on the branch. We need only look; but so often I'm caught up the cares of the day that I forget to look and so I miss out on beauty. I'm glad you captured this beautiful moment with the camera. Peace.

  5. Beauty all around, even in the shadows! Have a wonderful July 4th! Hope you and Jilda are good!
