amazing light !
This is a truly stunning image – and words … ‘Blessing the unfolding future’ …
Serene beauty. Enchanting presentation of image and word…food for the soul.
Steam rising, reflections in the water. Great photo!
Playing with the lights.. Amazing…
thank you for the lovely image and words. Just what I needed to start the day.

Stunning! What a moment.
Great catch! Excellent reflections, good prose! I love it!
A wonderful, powerful image, fraught with symbolism. The heron is a strong guardian spirit of the Ancestors to the Abenaki; it is called Kasco (as in Maine’s Casco Bay).
So wonderful to know! Thank you Rich. Kasco _/\_
Very nice capture of the heron.
I just love your heron – and its reflection. Thank you.
A stunning homage to the day.
Beauty and haiku…
very nice photo, good job
A beautiful picture with a special atmosphere
Ethereal and majestic…
The reflection adds such a mystical layer to the photo — beautiful image!
I love this.
Gorgeous and serene picture. I love the reflection!
A beauty. I can feel the stillness.
Apt complement to Hopkins’ soaring “Windhover.” This one is reflecting. Me too, thanks to you.
Phenomenal photo, C! 🙂
Thanks Eliza. This is one of my special places where wonderful images just materialize.
Beautiful! I really like how you have isolated the heron with the backlighting against the morning mist.
Exquisite….. And how lovely that you do this for all of us every day. Thank you.
Thank you Susan – and thank you for “spreading the light”
Wonderful. Didn’t see my heron much this year……
Keep looking. Maybe he’s just feeling elusive?
Your poem is food for thought: “there is no psychological time only chronological time.”
In other words: there is only the now.
What a stunning photo!
Beautiful. No other words required.
Fantastic photo, Catherine, and I loved the words. 🙂 ❤
Simple, beautiful, and up to your usual standards. I loved it. jlheman1945
What a beautifully serene image.
Perfect. I am transported.
Serene is right
Awesome. Beyond words.
Gran toma my friend! Saludos
a heron and morning light – gorgeous!
Thanks Gretchen. Did you notice the two tiny orange babies?
two tiny orange babies? I clicked on the picture and searched everywhere….no luck!
on the left hand side of the koi – about middle of the frame – two tiny orange ones are swimming in the opposite direction… Oh I’m referring to the wrong photo! “below the surface” sorry!
Thanks. That is a special place.
Very beautiful photo.
Wow that is a fantastic photo! I love Heron’s and someday want to get a photo of them myself! Have a splendid Thursday! Hugz Lisa and Bear
wonderful light and atmosphere.
Majestic Blue Heron alights on my stream occasionally- like a messenger from God!
Oh how delighted I would have been to have taken a photograph like that, it’s just beautiful.
The stillness of the moment frozen in mystery
AH. Thanks Graham
Centered in tranquility works. Lovely image.
This is really beautiful!
Serene and atmospheric.
Gorgeous picture 🙂
Lovely and very painterly.
