note to self: look up from the computer once in awhile!


              One is apt to overestimate beauty when it is rare. Mark Twain
I was working on the computer early one morning this week when I was blinded by this gorgeous sunrise You catch a glimpse of the lake near us in the first picture, both taken from the frosty deck.
It occurred to me that even if I don't see beauty as it is happening, it is still happened.
Elementary, my dear.                     
Stop by Skywatch Friday for more breathtaking sky views.

yes indeed, it is so easy to get caught up in our work, we forget that it is also our work and deepest pleasure to look and see the magnificence of the world around us. BEautiful moments captured!

Sometimes the light just envelopes you, even when you aren't looking, and demands attention, - beautiful shades, Noni.

Sunrises and sunsets are amazing and make wonderful photos.

Guess it's pretty cold in MN now; it's chilly here in Santa Fe, but it warms up beautifully during the day!
