I spent the weekend at Priest Lake enjoying a fireplace and book at Hills Resort with my partner Sarah. It was a wonderful weekend to relax and take a break from the extremely busy three months we have both had. It had been mostly cloudy all morning when suddenly a patch of sunlight hit some of the cedar branches in front of our window. I had to grab the camera and make this image. I must admit that I am surprised at just how high the contrast of the direct sunlight was on the cedar and how brilliantly sharp the soft fern like branches looked in the photograph. I look forward to returning in a month and starting a new project up at the lake.
