Moisture from the recent rain and snow in the mountains is described as a fire slowing event and though the fires are not out it feels like we are on the other side of the long stretch of dry smokey days. It was good to see Grey Wolf Peak , a rare occurrence during the last two months.
This morning on my walk, the Ninebark leaves carried a sheen of wet grace.
I was drawn to these bleached out leaves. I didn’t get a great shot but when I got back home it was fun to explore the lines and textures. Looking at my editing choices I think the time of fire and smoke still has a presence in me.
It was a morning for boots, mittens, the back of a dried thistle blossom and breathing the joy of clear air.
