Clouds now and again
give a soul some respite from
moon-gazing—behold.

Leftover from Last Summer

Nature gets into our souls and opens doors to hidden parts of ourselves.

Taken 02-28-12 with my iPhone and Olloclip lens.
One of the things I LOVE about the Olloclip macro lens is that it gives you very cool bokeh!
Don't know what bokeh is? Find out more HERE

Cardinal with Cold Toes


So when you're cold
From the inside out
And don't know what to do,
Remember love and friendship,
And warmth will come to you.

Before the Storm


Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
~ Rabindranath Tagore
The morning before our winter storm of 02/19/12 was sunny and gorgeous. But that afternoon the clouds rolled in. I saw this "saucer" like cloud and just had to pull out my iPhone and snap it! You can see a bit of the sunburst that I caught too. I think this type of cloud is called a Lenticular cloud - which you can read more about - HERE
And if you missed the detailed SNOWFLAKE shots I captured during our Storm - you can see those - HERE and HERE

Weaving a Friendship

My friend Karen - aka Happy One - knitted this dishcloth and sent it to me as part of a give away she had on her blog. I LOVE it! I am actually using it as a coaster and it is sitting on my desk.
Karen is one of the kindest people I have met in blog land. She has a Daily blog - LIFE IS Good - and also a Snapshots blog. She took THIS sunrise pic when out walking and it just takes my breath away.
Thank you Karen - I'm so glad we're friends!

With The Sun Shining on Her


Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Snowflake Macro


The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.
~Edward R. Murrow
Image made 02-19-12. I sat in my car for over an hour trying to capture the snowflakes that fell on my windshield. Taken with my iPhone and Olloclip Macro lens.

A Gull and His Shadow


Now is the time to unite the soul and the world. Now is the time to see the sunlight dancing as one with the shadows.
~Rumi
I was pleased to have captured the shadow of the gull's head and beak in his open wing. Do you see the shadow? Image made 02-18-12 at Bisset Park, Radford Virginia as the gull landed on the New River.

Friday

The Sun Sets


When the evening sky is painted 
Crimson by the setting sun, 
And the birds all cease to twitter, 
Knowing that the day is done, 
It is then we like to ponder 
And, forgetting worldly strife, 
Realize that love and friendship 
Are the greatest things in life.
~ Unknown

Mourning Dove - In the Blink of an Eye


Time is a brisk wind, for each hour it brings something new... but who can understand and measure its sharp breath, its mystery and its design?
~Paracelsus

Thursday

Mockingbird Heading to the Feeder


Every one of us has in him a continent of undiscovered character. Blessed is he who acts the Columbus to his own soul.
~Unknown

I put some grapes out in the feeder wreath (on the left). Mr. Mocker looked very sly heading over to grab a few.

To live happily is an inward power of the soul.

At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.

Some encouraging words for those out there that need them!

Look closely and you will find that people are happy because they are grateful. The opposite of gratefulness is just taking everything for granted.

Live The Life You've Imagined


Another iPhone pic! (I added the text of course) This was a chance shot ... I looked up.... saw the plane that looked like it was "flying to the moon" and thought - that would make a great  shot!  

Monday

Reflections in a Droplet


If you care about what you do and work hard at it, there isn't anything you can't do if you want to.
― Jim Henson

Do you find that you put limitations on yourself? I struggle with that on a daily basis - so when I saw this quote it really spoke to me!

Birds Make Me Laugh - Fun Shot Bloopers


Doesn't it look like he is "walking" on the water


Actually "running" may be more appropriate.
These were taken from the river bank through the branches of the trees looking out onto the New River at Bisset Park. I thought it was funny that I captured one goose running away from the other one. Unfortunately all I captured was the open mouth of the goose that was doing the chasing - but I think you get the idea :)

What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.
~Yiddish Proverb

Brown Creeper - Birding at Bisset Park


The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.
Oprah Winfrey

Bisset Park in Radford, Virginia is a GREAT place to see birds. It is part of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail. I saw several Brown Creepers during one of my outings there. They are so fast - and blend in with the trees so well. Bisset Park is also where I saw my spark bird - A Yellow-throated warbler.

Every Day Is Important!


There is no such thing in anyone's life as an unimportant day.
~Alexander Woollcott

About the Image: One of my favorite images from an outing  at Bisset Park in Radford, VA. I wish I had been able to capture the entire shadow but I'll take what I can get :)

About the Quote: That is one sentence that I completely agree with! Every day is important .... every MOMENT is important! Cherish your moments!
