For Kris' 50th birthday I surprised him with an overnight
get-away to Yosemite so he could take photos, photos,
and more photos. It was wet, snowy, mossy, cloudy,
with a touch of sun, and the view changed literally
by the moment. It was beyond beautiful.
A photograph is usually looked at...
seldom looked into.
When a traveler asked Wordsworth's servant to show him
her master's study, she answered, "here is the library,
but his study is out of doors."

One can make a day of any size and regulate the rising
and setting of his own sun and the brightness
of its shining. ~~John Muir~~
Sometimes, I do get to places just when God's ready
to have somebody click the shutter.
(My personal favorite. Taken with my
iphone, if you can believe it.)
Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of
green and golden wonder in a vast edifice
of stone and space. ~~Ansel Adams~
Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs
as nectar to the tongue. ~~John Muir~~
