Saturday was my last day at The Ranch in Montana. I spent the afternoon absorbing the magic here, swinging on Sharon’s delightful garden swing, basking in the sun near the water feature, swinging on the old fashioned rope swing hanging from a branch on one of the Ponderosa Pines on the property, listening to the birds. It was such a delightful way to spend a lazy afternoon. I was surrounded by pine cones and was determined to get a shot of one of them. Sharon found a cone still attached to a small branch surrounded by a bed of needles, the perfect candidate for my efforts and my macro lens.
