Gloaming refers to the last rays of light in the dusk of a clear day.
The sun is striking the branches and leaves of this tree and lighting it up brightly; I didn't alter the color at all. This picture was taken on one of my mother-in-law's last days. We would spend time with her at hospice and then come home and walk. It was a sad time, but now I have good memories of how she lit up our world with her spirit.
I love these brave little flowers that come up through the snow in March or even February. After one of our hard Michigan winters, they are such a welcome sight.
One of my favorite places is Caspersen beach. Here it is custom to leave your shoes, for a few hours when you are walking in the sand, or as a good-bye gesture, as this man has done. The shoes had been there for about a week when I took the picture.
