Sometimes, you need go no further than your own backyard.

Cabin in the Woods
Trapped In Time
There was a house in the woods, once.
It became ensnared by the very idea that created it.
Year after year I watched.
And did my best to learn

Climb Like a Girl
Because you can.
And because you're awesome if you do.
Climb Up Fall
Around here, climbers and skiers are the Heroes. Come Fall, they know they've only got a few good climbing days left for the year.
I don't know if they know intrepid photographers look for frame-ups just like this, combining the two though! hehheh.
"My needs are few," she said.
"Although I have some wants."
The Universe cocked its universal head and waited expectantly.
"I need clean air, good food, great friends, ease of riches and a lovely place to live.
I want for my imagination to always create great things that are for my highest good and the good of others. If I can have those things, I'd be golden."
And so she was.
May your light shine bright...
May your peace be complete...
May your world be full of color and the brilliance of all-that-is.
Bathing In Gold
In the Grove of Spun Gold
There is a place where visions are brighter, ideas are better, the light is gentler and the spun gold that permeates the air makes you a better person.
It looks a bit like this.
Brilliance Is Golden
The Veil Between Worlds
Sometimes maddeningly dense, sometimes wafting softly...
the veil between worlds floats, just within reach.
A Spot Just For You
Come on, pull up a chair.
We'll listen to the river, relax and talk about things that make us happy.
Just Like Old People
Snagged & Bagged
The aspens showed off their most recent catch on a march through the grove, while the sun shone approvingly.
Warm Me Up, Cool Me Down
It's like when you're wearing a really warm coat, but your feet are cold.
This is what that looks like. heh.
Shine the light in my face, through me and around me. I live for moments just like this.
Wildfire season. Devastating, choking, burning, scary, hot.
And sometimes beautiful.
The first tendrils of smoke arriving in our area from yet another one to the west.
Pining On The Summit
Donner Pass, Truckee, CA
Fire On The River
Even in the deep, chilly throes of of winter,
Warm was never far away.
Mother Nature weaves contrast better than any artisan.
One Last Tear
This place no longer exists. At least not in a form that provides awesome ice like this. No, they blasted through the mountain and re-routed the water. Now this is a historical shot. Sigh.
The only constant in life: change.
Donner Lake, Truckee, CA
Stones with skullcaps
seem to sigh.
clouds on high.
Filled with wonder,
my heart thunders.
Yes I know...
how blessed am I.
Picnic at the Beach
Donner Lake, CA
The Mr. & Mrs. loved to get up and watch the sun rise by the water on their own little slice of heaven.

The Big Blue
Big Bend, CA
One day, she shopped at the ermine store.
Found much that fit just right.
Took several items home...
then kinda-sorta-accidentally forgot to bring them back.
[no animals were harmed in the gathering of these pixels]
The Warm Goodnight
Big Bend, CA
It was cold out, but as her mother kissed her cheek goodnight, all was warm and right with the world.
