three firs

These three fir trees grow at the side of the path to the beach, and I’ve passed them many times without taking particular notice. But on this day the soft winter sun seemed to shine on them just right, highlighting the detail in the trunks while drawing out the pastel tones of the woodland foliage.

white boat

The boat made no pretensions to beauty; it was remarkable only in the stark whiteness of its utilitarian fibreglass hull. But I liked the way it looked, set atop an ancient driftwood log, with a background of frosted foliage that preserved the minimalist colour palette.
