When we still our minds and filter out the surrounding minutia we can see newfound beauty that surrounds us. The same quiet reflection finds beauty in others, within ourselves. Here, a quiet morning’s mushroom shimmers in full ballroom glory, glimmering with dewdrops as sequins reflecting early sunrise. With quiet mind and steady camera, I filter out the manure of the wild horse and focus on the mushroom’s splendor that outshines the refuse pile from which it draws its source of life.
