Magic Oak that Holds up the Sun

Today I’m participating in a new photo prompt, Whatsoever is Lovely by Xingfu Mama. I had an excellent walk this afternoon at Cherokee Marsh. It was not the longer, farther away stroll I had planned with friends at Lake Farms Park, but I exercised and it felt good.

The end of the day light was golden and warm. A gnarled oak looked like the Atlas of the sun. I was happy my phone’s eye could look where I could not dare gaze.

I love cattails. I can feel the seed fluff between my fingers still from my childhood years. Nature rewards us for spreading her seeds in autumn in so many clever ways.

Seeds wave in the wind awaiting the hungry mouths of creatures with four small paws or two wings. Harvest for winter sustenance.

¡Olé! –Rebecca

  1. A nice little challenge, it is! That first shot of the Atlas of the sun looks brilliant, and I could see it winning some photography awards! Your photos really capture the essence of fall!
