Behold... all the trees; when they shoot forth ye see and know of your own selves..
St. Luke 21: 29-30

I shot this self portrait this morning at 8:21 AM with some of the Poplar trees that my husband planted 10 years ago....They have really grown tall since then and they tower high above me in this shot which is showing scale in the differences of sizes. It was overcast lighting this morning.

    Thank you all for your kind words. Donald, I jogged very quickly through my morning entry to finish before it started raining, which it did immediately after I got done...even though I have many tree pictures in my archives I wanted a new one for the theme and it was fun getting out there in the overcast lighting:)

    This is lovely and peaceful. (Are you working off all the food you ate at the reunion?)

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen said (28 Sep 2011):

    Thanks all for the comments...Richard.. you hit the nail on the head! It was a huge meal and none of us went away hungry...I couldn't think of a better place to do my exercises but through the grove of trees where no one can see me but the birds and the bees and maybe a few hidden deer and turkeys. I had the pleasure of sitting next to my Phy Ed teacher from High school at the reunion's dinner table. She always gave us a good work out in exercises and now this many years later I realize how good it is for us to stay active:)
