Light for its Own Sake

I had an interesting thing happen this afternoon.  I went for another walk to the old power plant.  I did bring my camera, but since I had just taken the same walk yesterday, I concentrated on walking rather than on photography.  So many scenes were familiar because the lighting was the same.  But what I became aware of was the lighting - for its own sake.  I realized how absolutely beautiful the sunlight was, and just kind of drank it in for its own sake, not for the sake of photographs.  It was a wonderful experience!  Light for its own sake.  But I did take a picture, and here it is.

Betsey: These are Sycamore trees, also known as "buttonball" trees. These are the trees on the front lawn of "Buttonball Farm" in Guilford where dad was born! Although the buttonballs at Westside were more than 6 feet in diameter!

I knew they are the Sycamore trees and that they looked like the Buttonball trees in Guilford. The patterning is so unique. I did not realize that they are one and the same!!! betsey
