Where Dreams Like Rivers Flow by Rhana Griffin

Where Dreams Like Rivers Flow by 

I was inspired this morning to remember that sometimes the journey – the people you meet, the things you learn along the way – is more important than the destination.

So despite the bitter frosty morning I rugged myself up (two thermals are better than one) and set out to greet nature and the day with Sami and my trusty tripod in tow.

Turns out The Day had advance warning from Nature that I was coming (I think it was the blue wren who visits me that let the secret out)… and together they turned on an absolutely gorgeous – albeit bloody freezing – show.

This is most likely the easiest image I have ever had in post production, the only enhancement it has had is a slight vignette added. For the mist gently rising off the water… the glorious colour… the frost on the reeds… the delicate reflections… the beautiful ray of illuminating light… I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Nature and The Day.

Title inspiration from Newton Faulkner’s song “Gone in the Morning”
