"Each moment of the year has its own beauty."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I was intrigued this day with the meandering Ohio River. The challenge was to see the beauty in this muddy body of water. At first glance, the river appeared brown as one might assume after days of heavy rain; however, rich oranges and greens floated on the water’s surface. The added thrill was the reflected blue sky when the sun broke through the clouds.
