This deciduous tree near the ponds north edge doubled itself in the pond's surface.
And this lovely view beneath the pines which line the western edge of the pine suggested a nice place to lie down and take a nap. The pine needles and scattered cones looked positively warm in the golden rays of the setting sun.
While we (Mom and I) were driving to the pond for our walk, I noticed two sundogs, points of rainbow colors on either side of the sun. Slight cirrus clouds provided just enough water vapor for the prismatic action. I hoped to photograph them but like all ephemeral things, they were gone by the time I arrived and parked the car.
It is better that way. What we cannot quite grasp becomes all the more dear to us.
