I AM CAPTURED


I am transfixed 
I am in awe 


Nature's beauty once again has painted my landscape


 on one side of the road with golden hues of ochre, chartruese, and pewter gray


and on the other side with flaxen yellow, deep charcoal and a hint of baby blue


The clouds and sunlight have conspired to stop me


to seize me in this moment
while my Dads capture this moment
to share with you.

~~~

Enjoy

  12. Gorgeous, Sophie! You're making me homesick, and I don't get to go to NS until next year! But, I found out yesterday that my brother Roy and his wife Sue are coming to Colorado to spend five days with us. I rarely see my brother because he lives in Kuwait! I am very, very excited!!!!! Have a great day with the dads, Sophie Doodle!

  15. I love all the photos you dad took, the details and colors are remarkable. And so beautiful. I also love your new header picture, and for a Doodle, you sure have a great vocabulary. I can never remember what the color chartruese looks like.

  18. Sophie- that might be my favorite picture of you - "captured"! Reminds me of my 3 year old granddaughter in her car seat saying "I'm stuck gb!"

    Oh my goodness- the sunset pictures are beyond beautiful! The reflections against the water are amazing. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!!
