Lily Pond and more

Still Lily Pond provides reflections

Grass in the pond has turned brown

Low sun - A beautiful afternoon closing

Look carefully for the gold (fish)
Hello followers and friends on a Friday morning in mid-November.  Fall color in our trees here in Seattle has peaked, most of the leaves are down, the sun is lower in the sky, and the days are getting shorter.  Thursday was just a beautiful day with clear skies and cool temps.  Late in the afternoon we stopped by the Lily Ponds at Volunteer Park and spent some time reflecting on the beauty of Fall.  Also snapped some photos of Black Sun, a sculpture, that made me think about Stonehenge and how stones and the sun can work together to give precise date and time.  Finally, a couple of snaps of one of the (at least two) herons at Green Lake and dawn.  Thank you for stopping by John's Island and have a great weekend.

Peaceful afternoon at Volunteer Park, Seattle, WA

Funny how this made me think of Stonehenge

Solitude in the city

Black Sun is a 1969 sculpture by Isamu Noguchi
