December 24, 2018, Sonoma County Coast. I’ve looked at this frame approximately 9,476 times* and failed to see its potential. Today, I saw it with different eyes.** Don’t it make my brown eyes blue. Except they are blue.

Be well. Do good. Be kind. Create.

*If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a million times — I never exaggerate.

**What a difference a crop makes.

  1. I asked my husband, “What is one word that describes the moment you see in the horizon sunbeams breaking through after sailing though a storm?” He laughed, “Salvation.”

  2. Although not a religious person, I do see this as a fine image for Easter. A lot could be read into this.

    This happens to me often. Browsing through old files and all of a sudden something that almost was returned to the force field calls out for the “salvation” mentioned above and a beautiful image emerges.

    • Thank you. I don’t know how many times my lens wasn’t long enough to isolate what I really wanted and I made a mental note to crop. I didn’t make that note on this one, but I should have.
