Wow for Wordless Wednesday

Okay, maybe not wordless.

I am in the field for work this week and am sneaking in some pictures of the scenery. It is amazing. I entered "the canyon" and immediately my eyes were popping with the incredible views.


Fluffy white clouds above the mountains drifted by effortlessly like feathers floating on an eternal breeze.


Steep, dramatic peaks with sharp ridges and swooping saddles were eye candy for my starved vision.


Barns from antiquity could provide shelter from storms while allow visions of stars.


And the view from another angle was not disappointing.


And this was...


My favorite shot of the day...

I'll be back soon and need to catch up on my blog reading! Bye for now...

Lovely. Looks like you must be soaking up the sun in So. Cal. Those mountains remind me of Escondido, where my grandparents live.

Wow! is right... beautiful landscapes! Stunning photos! You make me long to know your part of the world. New England is so tame by comparison. The majesty of it all ... to stand there must be amazing is all I can imagine. I love your wordless words too! ;>))

Doris Sturm said...

and that's exactly why I still miss Southern California after being away for 5 years already. People have no idea what California is really all about...thanks for sharing the photos. Made me homesick. It's a painter's paradise for sure (amonst other things!)

Happy Valentine's Day!
