Both the photograph and your words hang in the air as a suspended thought - beutiful.

steven said...

aguja - it's so reminding to see the leaves as they reappear after their icy immersion . . . some of their baby brothers and sisters will appear soon . . . steven

I love your new header Steven but it does remind me of a Canadian river we stayed by at the start of the midge/black fly season a couple of years ago. I have never seen anything like the size of them.

hello weaver . . . this river is in the laurentian mountains in quebec and there were no bugs!!! so re-imagine the experience sans bugs!!!! it's so beautiful there i could happily buy the cabin of my dreams and move right now!!! steven
