This tree trunk far from nondescript, wouldn’t have otherwise caught my fascination for its unique markings, had I not taken the time to proverbially “smell the roses”.
At first, it felt rather uncanny to be met no pun intended eye to eye, by this somewhat true to life marking, of an anatomical eye. Foreboding thoughts soon fleeted however, superseded by a whimsical sense of intrigue. I became mesmerised, in transience there and then, nature and I spoke only one language- Love & Oneness.
May you find a moment or two, or three today to stop and smell the roses. To seek beauty in the simplest things and to connect with nature and the elements. May you speak the universal language that can only be spoken from the heart and meet the spark that is within you through the windows of another’s Soul.
Amazing Parhélie (SunDog) Sunset formation this evening at the lake.
A sun dog (or sundog) or mock sun, formally called a parhelion (plural parhelia) in meteorology, is an atmospheric optical phenomenon that consists of a bright spot to one or both sides of the Sun. Two sun dogs often flank the Sun within a 22° halo.
The sun dog is a member of the family of halos, caused by the refraction of sunlight by ice crystals in the atmosphere. Sun dogs typically appear as a pair of subtly colored patches of light, around 22° to the left and right of the Sun, and at the same altitude above the horizon as the Sun. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but are not always obvious or bright. Sun dogs are best seen and most conspicuous when the Sun is near the horizon. ~Source Wikipedia

Fall colors are insane up here in Washington 🍂😍 ••
While I’m super pumped for my trip to New Orleans (leaving tomorrow morning), I do hope I get back to WA and have a few more sunny days for some day-trips/ drone flights in the area. ••
Anyone have any destinations they love visiting during Fall? Would love to hear!
