Photography 101: Treasure

Winter Treasure.

Winter is coming.

Cold winds blow.

The mountains frosted white.

Deep in forest as the cold takes hold, icy treasures glisten.

Changing, new, from day to day on the whims of the stream.

There for the taking diamond white, jewels created of ice.

 Seasons Change

Windswept and frigid.

Lonely, beautiful in frozen solitude with just one other sharing the alpine majesty.

Only the winter wind breaks the silence.

Clouds fill the sky over sun warmed summits.

Trails come alive with mountain adventurers.

Seasons change, the mountains remain.

 

 

Looking Back On Lincoln

Heaven Is The Third Peak To Your Left.

Feeding my soul at 5,000 feet.

The mountains are my church, and the windswept summits are the altar upon which I find solace.

In The Church Of Ice And Snow.

Many worship behind stained glass, or under minarets.

My place of worship is in solitude, high on a mountain ridge as I watch the sun dip below the western horizon. As the warmth of daylight is replaced by the cool blue of twilight, this is where I find peace and salvation.

For me, this is Heaven.

Ice Beautiful

My Winter Photography Isn’t All Grand Scenic Landscapes.

Sometimes it’s the little gems that catch my eye.

Here, in my latest article for the New England Photography Guild, I write about the hidden jewels I find along the way to those wonderful mountain vistas.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

The object of my affection.

While out photographing yesterday we came across this beautiful rustic cabin.

 

Spectacular scenic view from a rustic log cabin.

 

With its rustic charm and field-stone fireplace, I could easily “downsize” for a simpler life. The cabin alone is a place I could easily call home.

Add the spectacular view to the equation and I call it Heaven.
