spring’s high noon

Yes, the shadows from the fence really do seem like sundial shadows and they are so “straight” it does indeed seem to say “noon”. I’m struck by the contrast between the man-made straight lines and the wiggly, irregular forms of Nature.
Lovely combination of words and image
Beautiful Catherine–lovely combination of man made and natural working in harmony–a rare thing these days.
Put me in the wondering place — just what are nature’s straight lines? Prairie horizons, tulip stems, stands of pine trees. And all of those are tempered with curves. Just why do we like straight lines so much? But it’s certainly a striking contrast in your photo. Lovely.
Goodness, seedbud, that was sweet! A great eye for this one, and words to match. As always…
I love this. I have often tried to work out time by where the sun is in my gatden. The picture is fantastic.
And the little bells are thinking of tolling the time.
this image is without a doubt the fascinating. http://www.ankarasc.com/author/colettecrom/
