Beauty of Sunset

But in return they can be the source of great enlightenment. ”

Winter in Trout Lake

I wanted to share a few pictures with you from the month of February 2019, in Trout Lake, Washington. We had one of those heavy snowfalls that came fast and furious, Beautiful and dangerous.

First Snow

My view this morning at 8 am in Trout Lake, Washington which is just south of Mount Adams.
Happy December everyone, stay safe on the roads!

Falling Leaves

Such a lovely day on the crick out back, Standing there in delight while when gusts of wind grabbed the trees and shook them, sending Cascades of Cottonwood leaves falling all around me.

Leaves landed in the creek and drifted by, yellow hearts against the reflections in the slowly moving stream.

The sun would playfully hide behind the stormy clouds and Peek out at unexpected moments, and all of a sudden everything was brilliant yellow and red and green and blue.

Sunset in Glenwood

On my way back from the woods Wednesday evening, i witnessed this wonderful sunset over Mount Adams, from Glenwood, WA.

Soft, Springy Earth

“What a joy it is

to feel the soft, springy

earth under my feet once more,

to follow grassy roads

that lead

to ferny brooks

where I can bathe my fingers

in a cataract of rippling

notes.”

~ Helen Keller

Catherine Creek Earth Day

My journey continue today after the previous post with a walk at Catherine Creek. It was truly so pleasant, and I took the opportunity to play in the grass quite frequently :-). I felt such a peaceful simple joy laying in the grass, in the sunshine.

Enjoy!

Frosty morning in Trout Lake

First time in awhile, i actually got up early before sunrise and ran out with my camera! Felt so good, too. ❤️😀❤️Although i sm sure my fingers wete on the edge of frostbite again. 🤪⛄️. Watched the moon setting, and the glorious new day shine on sparkly snow. Light shining into the darkest crevices of the soul cleaning out some winter cobwebs. Life is good!!

Here are a few phone pics for now. I am crossing my fingers that the camera card that suddenly told me i needed to format it will still be able to be downloaded. That moon over Trout Creek was soooo pretty.

Enjoy! Hope your day is full of happy moments of beauty and kindness.

Supermoon Lunar Eclipse

For the “Super Blood Moon” event I went with my friend Gary up on Dalles Mountain in hopes of seeing more of the moon coming over the horizon. In hindsite, I am not certain that was quite the case, but it was still a lovely night. Many people were out on the roads last night flocking to favorite locations in hopes of getting “the shot” or seeing what may for some of us be a once in a lifetime experience.
Having watched several lunar eclipses over the years, still it was really different seeing the moon become eclipsed as it was rising over distant hills as the sun set and twilight came on.
Here are a few images, each with its own time stamp. Hope you enjoy!
