Moody Mountains

Please click on photo to enlarge.


I love the mountains. I always have and in the 20 years I’ve lived here I never found a reason to change that view.
They stand tall and strong through storm and sun. We walk them and mine them and log them and abuse them and they take it and go on.
They’re timeless and eternal and fresh and new to me each time I see them.
They’re spirit guardians for me. I feel both small and expanded when I am with them and they touch me deeply.
I hope you enjoy the moodiness of this photo as much as I do.

Love the mountain picture--it's a bit unsettling, but in a good way.

(And I know we've already discussed the new glasses, but I'm still getting a big kick out of your new photo--the contrast between your serious expression and the wild specs makes me giggle).

Awesome photo and just breathtaking mountains.

Health and Happiness

I'm so pleased you like the pic, Crabby. Feel free to comment on my specs as the spirit moves you.
At the risk of bragging I took that photo myself to make sure I got the look I wanted.

Thanks so much, Lady Rose.

What an amazing picture. Mountains and beautiful clouds just don't seem to be of this world.

Leah J.Utas said...

Hello Scrumpy's Baker - You're right. I feel sometimes as though I've stepped out of time and the world when I'm in the mountains.

Wonderful photo Leah. I love the mountains in all their many moods and you have done a beautiful job of capturing a very moody day.

Leah J.Utas said...

Thanks so very much, Reb.

Hi Leah

So glad to see you back on deck. Love your glasses! Sort of Dame Edna Everage looking!

Your mountains are even better. I do hope that your health is continuing to recover.

Leah J.Utas said...

Hello Dawn, yes the glasses do have a Dame Edna cast to them. It was a part of their appeal for me.

Thanks for the health wishes and I'm so happy you like the mountain pic.
