Day 305: Something Beautiful—The Vanishing Moment

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

Nature gives us beautiful accidents and many brief beautiful moments. That beauty can be a vanishing moment reminds us of how much it should be treasured. I never like the approach of winter. I am always a little sad when summer leaves for autumn and sadder when the final leaves drop.

David Yashimoto’s brilliant photo of sun on the crest of a winter hilltop has reminded me that if I look closely, I will see color and different kinds of beauty in the coming winter landscape.
