My little Island garden-
after two years of Covid
gave us no choice
but to let it be-
BECAME!

Left to its own know-how,
trusting itself to sense
conditions ripe for growth
it became a patch where
wild strawberries grow!

And so, maybe it’s true
for both our gardens and us
that things we spend years forcing to grow
are really waiting, wanting to become
something else.

Fortunate doesn’t begin to describe how I felt about being on Mackinac when the Aurora showed up in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

When I got out to Arch Rock the green just looked like an off-color patch of light pollution to the naked eye, above the ‘real’ light pollution from the Soo. But according to the Aurora Pro app conditions were right for something to show up so I kept the camera pointed north and went for it!

…one more thing worth mentioning, I edited out the safety rail that showed up the lower RH corner. The price of going ultra wide (14mm) to fit everything else in!

Mackinac Island - post sunset / twilight view looking along Main Street. It was a little darker than shown here but I had the shutter open longer to achieve the effect I was looking for. You don't see this in most daytime snapshots.
