View From The Ground

  Flowers are beautiful. If I had a dollar for every photo I have of flowers I might actually have some money…. Seriously, is there anybody who wants to give me a dollar per photo? All Kidding aside, we tend to look at flowers from one direction, the top. Sometimes I think that is how […]

Life is Not Fair

It’s not! It just isn’t. One moment you are sitting on a flower, soaking up the sun, enjoying a lovely spring day, and in the next moment a windshield is careening at you at 60 miles per hour… or at least it would be if you were a monarch butterfly who happened to venture over […]

Nostalgia: Want to Stay On The Mountain Top

  Who Doesn’t want to stay on top of the mountain? It’s beautiful, The air is crystal clear, one can see for miles all around, and there is a sense of whimsy and freedom, like being on top of the world. Who wants to go back into the valley to deal with all of that […]

Beautiful Death

  The early morning frost on the delicate petals of a small purple clover flower, appears beautiful.

That doesn’t sound very comfortable, and not easy to hide. That was the point, right? Not to be comfortable but to reflect the pain and grief felt on the inside, outwardly. That […]

What is that?

  I love the earth, the beauty of nature all around us. That is probably why most of my photos are of God’s Glorious Creation, in all of it’s spender, mystery, majesty and power. My quote, at least the one I like to use on my e-mail has been the same for years. “I’ll never […]

Throw A Stick In It!

What does one do when faced with the unbounded beauty of the natural world, in all the grace and splendor which God created it. Well, if you were my two year old daughter, you would throw a stick in it.   On a recent trip to my husbands home state of Colorado we decided to […]

Alone On This Broke Dock

A lot of times we feel that we are alone, broken, falling apart. When I saw this dock on the side of the road that is what came to mind. It also came to my attention how peaceful it looked, standing out there, the framework still resisting the elements almost as if to say, I […]
