I stumbled on these driving to work in the morning, many days I leave a bit early to try a shoot a few, it seems to set my mind right for the day at work. Sometimes the simplest light and subjects are just so beautiful.

    The subtle gradual shades of the light too darker blue, as well as the contrasting light reflected off the leaves ,helps create sereneity and clamness viewing a silent movement
