I awoke to high winds and a temperature near freezing so I donned by long underwear before heading out to walk the dogs. Despite the cold I was grateful for the clear skies and sunshine, an oddity in Portland that time of year. Still, I couldn't help but think back to a new short months ago when they days were longer and we still felt the occasional kiss of summer on our faces so when I was looking through unprocessed photos this one caught my eye not because of the inherent warmth but because I liked the starburst of light coming through the fern fronds and illuminating the leaves littering the ground.
