Ice blue winter sky
Mountain ash berries in red
Worthy wind chilled walk.
Credit Where It is Due
I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.
I have some red berries to compete with those, but mine are on nandinas. We do have a gusty 40 mph wind which is making the large flag on our flagpole sound a bit like thunder. it is 25 deg at 6.45 PM and expected to be 9 deg by morning.
This is a very lovely photo. I love the berry colour against the sky.
Lovely combintaion of words and image. Thanks for this.
All the best, Boonie
Lovely against the sky and very pretty as Christmas decorations too! ;-)
Really? With all the wind that's blowing across the country, I can't imagine the berries are still clinging on! We aren't having snow in Florida but the window is fierce!!! Coming from the northwest...
I wonder what kind of tree this is....
Happy Blue Monday, Dimple.
The berries are so pretty. The local robins ate all mine weeks ago! :)
