Silence


“Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.” Albert Einstein

We no longer have any snow in the city but the mountains still have plenty. This shot is from our hike.

Randy...my Christmas card was a photo I took of some plants here at my home and the word on the front was "Silence". This is a great quote. I wrote something I found online on the back of mine and I can't remember who it was that I "borrowed" it from but it went like this: It is within silence that we gain a deeper connection to our unique spirit." I liked it because it reminded me of the traditional "Silent night" stuff of Christmas but in a more esoteric way.

A meaningful quote by Mr. Einstein.

One fine pic Randy. A soft shadow cast by the little twigs. Nice how a snow can quiet the surrondings. I can hear the Silence in this pic!

Good coposition, Randy! At last, it snowed last night here, and everything is under a snow blanket!

my fave pic so far. I love that
so many people wouldn't have even seen
a photo there ...

silence ... is often a person's loudest
scream

I think it resonates with this photo
so well ... it seems so peaceful
but there is actually so much going
on in it

I leave for the West coast of France for a week and there's snow on SFDP, I come back and you've been catching a poetic snowy scene... ;-) Still no trace of the white stuff here.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
