flickering sun, snowdrops, puddles

After this morning's rain the sun comes out and, low in the sky, comes through the leaves of the bay tree outside the window and flickers, almost like candlelight, on the oak table top.

Snowdrops appear in the Grove.

A good day for puddles: they seem to be windows into another world, a sepia world, which tremble at the least disturbance.This afternoon I photograph reflections of a beech hedge, and the excommunicated branches of trees.

I really love your blog. You have a wonderful way with words.

Now that I've buttered you up. You've been tagged. Write 10 things that define your style. Hope you enjoy! Mine are located on my Happy Thoughts blog.

Don't you know its unfair to tell people of the photographs you have taken and then not show them those? Photos of the puddle please!

Thank you Melanie. I have difficulty with the idea of style. It seems to mean different things to different people.If asked to describe mine, I suppose I would say that it adds up to what I try to do and be.I try to be:
1, amusing/interesting; 2, precise; 3, concise; 4, balanced; 5, helpful; 6, kind; 7; honest; 8,tactful; 9, aware; 10, postive - ie identify what is good before what is bad.

Rashmi, I am about to download the puddle shots from the camera. If they are any good, I will put them on the blog.
