Over the last month I’ve watched as weather changes created new views at the Giacomini Wetlands near my home. Deep morning freezes around the New Year transformed the drought-ravaged grasses into a crystalline, white-frosted wonderland. Later, as things warmed up and welcoming rains returned, puddles along the trails reflected the barren trees and skies. Down below, some puddles oozed mysterious arrays of micro-bubbles. Fascinated, I knelt down with my camera lens just inches from the water’s surface to capture these floating shiny spheres. Then, just last week, morning fog festooned the newly-born grasses with jewels of dew, sparkling in the back-light of the morning sun.
Here are just a few of the photos I made since the new year.
