Spider on Strand*

suspended at eye level, near the water’s edge. I literally bumped into this spider early in the morning while photographing a pair of swans. The lower end of the strand seemed anchored to the ground, though I couldn’t follow it, and the upper end to a bush nearby. The effect was magical.

The day had broken gray and overcast, with a fine mist on the water. The light was pearl-soft, transforming everything it touched. It caused the filament to glow.
