Another photograph taken during the recent Miksang workshop in Boulder. As we endure 96F heat and high humidity in Chicago, this image struck me as especially inviting to process. 😉

The white flecks were puffs of cottonwood seed floating on the pond’s surface, but remind me of  falling snow or cherry blossoms.

Nikon D300; f11 @ 1/180 sec, ISO 720 (handheld);
18.0-200.0 mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 200mm (300mm EFL); focus distance 2.24m

  1. It’s a challenge to capture the quality if inwards focused thinking. I feel, you succeeded here. Well, the shot comes close to a flash of perception for me, but what it definitely does, is to lead my thoughts way into the sky and the future, just to return to myself. I really like that. So much gentle rhythm here…


  2. Thank you very much for your comments, Roland.

    During the workshop, I did not submit this as a “flash” on assignment. But I did enjoy the moment, and it stayed in my mind when I returned home.
