Along Life's Roads

Last month I took Photo Meditation class with Susannah Conway.
I must say that taking a photography class encourages me to notice more what is around me.
My camera travels every where with me, so on this particular day included a drive in the country.
How fortunate I feel that along life's roads opportunities are there to grab.
Finding eagles on a grey day along the road just gave pause to stop and notice,
then pull out my camera and capture their beauty.
Eagles remind me of the majesty of life, the richness of the small things.
Aren't they gorgeous against the grey sky?
They did brighten my day.

What are you finding to brighten your day?

Marilyn, I never knew you had a blog! I have had one for over four years, but recently *retired* it for lack of comments. I hope yours will continue to flourish!

I (as you know) use my photographs to express my artistic voice...I think you will grow to love Photography as an art form...your photo is thrilling! Something I NEVER see in California!

Brava!!!

Hugs,

♥ Robin ♥

Beautiful capture of the eagles. That would be a sight I would love to see and photograph! For me it's an 'at home day' today catching up with my blog friends' news accompanied by their inspiring illustrations from their life stories. There will also be the opportunity to go out into the garden and enjoy the beautiful Autumn weather we're still enjoying in our region of England. I hope you have a lovely, creative day, Marilyn.

This is lovely, Marilyn -- all "silouhetty" but the eagles are definitely in light and you can see the detail. Nice capture.

Never heard of a Photo Meditation class before, but it sounds most intriguing!
