The air is cool and crisp, and the light breaks through the pines—a warm glow silhouetting the trees in inky relief to the pale orange behind. The stillness of the winter frost on the decaying leaves that crunch underfoot, snapping and crackling as I kneel to find the perfect angle to capture the sunrise. Wren's warble overhead, and I look up to catch a dash of movement against the tangle of branches that cover in a canopy. Moments later, a brown squirrel scampers down, head-first, holding a nut in it's mouth and clinging to the ivy that curls around the thick trunk of a mighty oak that stands a few yards off to my right. I rub my hands together, trying to steady my hands that are already growing cold as I position the camera to the perfect angle. A freshness, clear and clean pervades the morning with a hint pine intermingled like a lemon garnish on a cocktail. I snap a few pictures in rapid succession and smile at the result—a beautiful moment now encoded digitally for future. The squirrel eyes me quizzically, clinging to a branch not far from where I kneel, I raise my camera to capture him, but he impishly scampers off before I can focus the lens. Shrugging, I turn back up the path that leads to the backdoor of my home, ready for my morning coffee...
