Every year, right about this time, a flock of pelicans fly in to the pond down the way, which the locals refer to as 'Pelican Pond' to herald the arrival of summer. They have not make their appearance this year as of yet. There is a surreal feeling in the air as I feel I cannot begin to appreciate the season until I have seen the pelicans. The water of the pond is almost always a dark, murky brown, but on this day it was lit up brightly to reflect the rich colors of the marsh surrounding it. The pond so far this year has remained murky and uninviting, as if it too awaits a sign that summer has arrived.
Cousins In The Creek
I love the many facets of light and this simple silhouette, lit up by the summer sun reflecting off the ripples of Fountain Creek remains one of my favorites.
