My Photo Culture: 'Pied Beauty'...




                           "GLORY be to God for dappled things—
                          For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;


              For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
                      Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;




      Landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough;
                And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.




                          All things counter, original, spare, strange;




                       Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)




                     With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;




                         He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
        





Praise him'
-Gerard Manley Hopkins-

Lovely! That top one is almost like an optical illusion!

Love the pairing of the poetry of G.M.Hopkins with your photography.
Both beautiful.
