it's magic



These are wild blackberry bushes growing at the edge of our lawn. It always amazes me that the setting sun can make something quite ordinary, ugly even, into something quite extraordinary. :)

I would say... and it take an amazing photographer to be able to see it and capture the image... Very nice....

It's so true! This is gorgeous. I'm going to wait until the sun starts to set tonight before picking up my camera.

Mary,

I visit your Magical little corner of blog land as often as I can. Truly you have a God given gift to not only "find the picture" but to relay a warmth I have yet to find anywhere. Your work moves me! Sincerally, Shelly

I usually think of brambles as horrible things (unless, of course, they have blackberries!) But I think for the first time I've noticed their crisp architecture and deep green colouring. Hmm - I must closely at them when I next see them!
