Everything came together in natural perfection. Golden light was streaming onto a roadside pond and warming up the bull rushes and reeds. Morning mist was hanging, just above the surface of the pond, which was calm and reflective. Three Trumpeter Swans - two adults and one cygnet were calmly feeding and swimming in this magical golden light. The pure white of the adult swans against the soft misty backdrop of warm autumn colors opened a window to the divine, a magnificent connection to the very essence of Nature.
