Walking quickly on a cow path before the rain begins,  suddenly there is sunlight that so surprises me

I stop thinking for an instant

and simply be…

    Gloroiski! Images like this are why I’m terrified of trying to draw or paint landscapes….. How could I even come close?! The bands of darker color give the suggestion of looking through half-closed eyes… In ecstasy…. Just glorious!

    A very beautiful photo and a beautiful thought. RLTE
    PS wonder if you picked up the award I gave you.

    …and through parting of heavens,
    the light appeared,
    and God showed Himself
    to me.
    I BE!

    (Linda I thought that was your exquisite painting–FROM a photo. Some say, one cannot paint “God”. But I believe that in every sincere work–of art, music, or digging a ditch–God is present, and can be discerned.

    WOW!!!!!!!! What a stunningly beautiful capture, Linda!

    And I loved Steve E’s comment above because I truly believe the same. Anytime I see beams of light cascading down through the clouds from the heavens, I think, “That’s God showing himself!”

    Thanks for sharing the beauty, dear friend!

    (((((( You )))))))

    Our ancestors worshiped Sun and for good reason. Thank you for this magnificent image (and always remembering to carry a camera). You are a most dear heart.

  6. Beautiful! I love it when that happens.

    Amazing…. I can stare at this one for a bit and just dream………..

  8. dear friends,

    What a gorgeous shot – and a lovely blog (my first visit – thanks to Susan for connecting the missing dots for me). I know just what you mean about being struck still and real by a moment of light and weather. I often daydream that heaven will be like walking forever into brighter and brighter light and greater and greater beauty.
