a little black rain cloud

i’m just a liitle black rain cloud
hovering over the
honey tree.

i’m just a little black rain cloud
pay no attention to
little me.

— Winnie the Pooh

I laughed out loud when I noticed this little grey cloud hovering over what could have been a honey tree for all I know–we do have bees here in New Mexico!

This image was shot from the Dale Ball Trails overlooking the Cerro Gordo region of Santa Fe. It’s one of my favorite spots in the world to exercise and breathe in the earthy aroma of pinon!
