Sunlight through the woods

I spent yesterday afternoon sitting on the deck.  It was too nice to stay indoors.  Being a bear of little ambition yesterday, my deck sitting consisted of doing pretty much nothing, thinking pretty much nothing.  I took a book with me, and the camera.  But it was so nice just sitting there, just being.  I didn’t need the book.  Or the camera.  Until…

… I looked out at the back of the pond.  The swallows swooping and swirling drew my eyes back that way.  It was the sunlight coming through the dark green of the woods that kept my eyes focused there for a while.  Finally I reached down, picked up the camera, and snapped a few shots.

Then I went back to sitting and being and listening to the birds while the sun poured down on me.
