Solstice 2020 in Alaska – I call this “Medea Becalmed”. The form is actually the buoyant root tips of a white spruce tree anchored in a small pond. Such trees, often exceeding 80 feet in length, are eroded from river banks during high-water events, swept downstream, and scattered across the flood plain. When the light is favorable and the water quiet, the surface becomes a mirror. Reflecting its quiet glory, the discovery challenges the finder to share it with the world. – Douglas of Ester
