Recently, a friend sent me an anonymous quote that had a unique definition of PEACE. It indicated that peace is not necessarily being free from disturbance. Instead, it is “being calm” in the midst of choas, in the midst of disharmony.
This sunrise was taken of Mt. Massive in Twin Lakes, CO, during the fall. It reminds me of hope to begin anew, to find the light and good in each day and to honor the sacred landscape around us. May this image be a visual reminder for you to “be” PEACE in your everyday living, everyday stress, everyday experience. This is my offering to you this day, this morning.
I am from the east coast and when I moved to Colorado, I wondered if I would miss the fall foliage of Connecticut and the New England area. To my surprise, I have fallen in love with the aspens and enjoy the bright color. They make a mountain look quite joyful and happy – just to be. Since the sky was less interesting in this photograph, notice that I have reduced it to a small segment of the photograph. Nature and photography are a wonderful combination for visual impact. Enjoy!
The area around Twin Lakes, CO, has 14,000 high peaks. Here is the beautiful splendor of the golden aspens reminding us in an awe-inspiring way to respect and honor nature. For my photo technique for depth of field, check out the below post “September in Colorado #3.”
I was able to do a fall excursion in Colorado with my sister. We traveled to Leadville, Twin Lakes, Independence Pass, Aspen and Buena Vista. I could not resist sharing some of my photographs with the golden aspens in bloom and the magnificence of the 14,000 high mountains. All of these landscape photographs were taken with a tripod and high F-stop (F-16) for maximum depth of field. Of course, lighting with nature photography is of the essence and I was blessed one morning with nice cloud formations for a special effect.
