(Enlarge. Yes, that's an order.)

My morning walk has been neglected for far too long. It used to be an everyday thing. No excuses. I've been slacking since the onset of cold weather, though. I blame the seductive charms of my goose down comforter, keeping me in bed until the last possible moment. I was able to escape her warm downy clutches this morning, though, and I'm so glad I did. The day dawned with a crisp golden glow, and the brisk walk invigorated me, mind body and spirit. I've been in a fantastic frame of mind the past few days, anyway, but even so, a morning walk makes such a marked difference in my day, taking a good mood and making it incandescent. I am filled with a relaxed but bountiful energy, and my whole outlook on life improves. So, I'm putting it in writing here, so as to sharpen my resolve: I hereby solemnly pledge to cast off the billowy feather-filled seductress every morning and take my walk, come hell or high water. It's not even about the long-term benefits of brisk exercise; it's all about the instant gratification of enjoying the morning and having the energy to MAKE it a good day, even if I have to drag it kicking and screaming. Carpe diem, literally.

????? The opening and closing shots are divine. The colours on the bark are amazing.

photopoet These are absolutely magnificent. If this is what I saw every morning I'd throw off that goose down—

Wonderful wonderful set.

iustinium o, I like these a lot!!! a lot of a lot!! Other than #2 and maybe #3 where the colour is a little pale (possibly from flare), this set is great in terms of colour, lighting and composition, my joint favs are #4, #5.
