A hard frost last night, and sunshine this morning. I went back to the prairie plantings on campus and was able to catch a few sparks of light before the warmth dispersed the frost.
And here's a before and after shot -- yesterday's coneflower above, and today's below.
And to close with, maple leaves in the sun.
My approach to contemplative photography --
Tell about it."

Tesserae: small cube-shaped tiles of ceramic, glass or precious stone used to make a mosaic, or in this case, brief essays on some element of lectio divina with Luke 10:38-42.
