Light


Sunny days in our winter land can be quite rare. Yet if one immerses in the days that behold the sun.... they will survive with great spirit.


great spirit is abundant
when inner light
is ones friend


To see skies around the world, go to: Skywatch Friday

  1. Wonderful photos, the contrast is beautiful. The pictures remind me of the two day stubble on a man's face! Thanks for sharing.

  2. OK, apologies because I'm probably going to sound a bit like a retarded eejit here: are those trees on the slopes (I think so) or shrubs? I'm a bit disorientated because stupidly enough I would have expected evergreens... Such a gorgeous blue summer ;-) sky against the pristine white is simply perfect.
    Thank you wild places lover ;-) for visiting Versailles city where all wilderness has been tamed, and have a good weekend, full of inner (and outside) light!

  3. Carolyn,
    you made me laugh ;-)

    Cieldequimper,
    the reason it is odd is due all the trees were burned in a forest fire, so they are black!

    Thanks for asking and visiting.

  5. It's like getting one's battery charged. I am looking into enlarging my capacity.

  6. Are you saying we should dissolve our encasings (burned trees)to feel and absorb the light more? :) Or do you feel we need to move beyond the bark to reflect the light of the sun?

  7. N. Moments ~

    I enjoy your thoughts on our oh so many possibilities. My thoughts with this post are~ the sun absolutely enhances and uplifts our spirits and feeds our physical being. Yet my sense is that we don't have to rely on the sun to have spirit dancing in us, we have a light within that is full of the spirit of life.

  8. The snowy mountains are beautiful but the sky is a gorgeous blue. I guess these pictures show why Montana is called the Big Sky Country.

  14. I remember seeing Yellowstone look like this after a forest fire, the trees like walking dead. The wildflowers that springs were beautiful, though.

    These days, sunlight feels like something to gulp. Spring cannot come too soon.

  16. This was just what I needed today. I've had a full schedule of patients who are all coming in later. I can tap into my own inner light to remind myself of the abundance of light and beauty around me.

  26. I was wondering like cieldequimper those black lines. Was there a bush fire like Australia?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi Ann,

    Yes there was a bush fire. It was quite a while ago, before I lived here. I wish I could tell you when, a quick google search did not give me the answer I was hoping for. In some areas small trees are growing. We get a lot of bush fires from lightening and other causes. Last summer we were lucky and in our area we were pretty much smoke free. The summer before we had a fire that impacted us for a month. With summer seeming so short as a season it felt as though our summer was taken away to brown skies and smoke that was hard to breath.

    Thanks for asking.

  31. Montana is one of the prettiest places on earth! These are gorgeous shots. Fire is awful for us and the animals to live through, but so good for our forests.

    Beautiful post!

  33. This all looks so familiar Tammie!!! And what a special "day after your birthday-day it was" on the North Fork Road, spending a glorious day together!!! I loved every lingering stop along the 35 mile gravel, but snow-covered road!!! Lets do it again sometime soon!!

  35. How magnificent. The ripple of all those bare trees against the snowy mountain looks almost like a tapestry softly blowing in the wind.

  36. Amazing shots! Those trees and the shadows - awesome and beautiful!

  37. Amazing shots. Those thin and straight branches look like hair on the mountains.

  38. Found you through Milly. The mountains remind me of Hemingway's short masterpiece...Hills Like White Elephants...of all the years I've studied that work, I've never been able to find a real image of what they must have looked like ot the young pregnant girl, or were imagined to have looked like to Hemingway....you've given us , probably, the closest...thank you! beautiful work
