Nature

Another beyond beautiful, blue sky day in the mountains!!! With our new camera, I was on my way to the lake this morning by 6:30, without the dogs who wondered why they weren’t going – it was so cold – my fingers didn’t want to cooperate with the camera  – the sun never came over the mountain while I was there this morning – still – what a J-O-Y~!!

The Crescent Moon

Lifting the shade the other morning left me in awe as the glowing, picturesque crescent moon was coming over the mountain top. I smiled. I stood still enjoying the moment. I hurried to grab my camera and the moment.
