So cool! I love these photos! Especially the insect ones.... I don't like insects per se, but I love taking photos of them too! :)

I wish I could've taken a walk in nature today... but instead I took a 2 hour drive in the rain to the airport to pick up a friend that doesn't even come in until tomorrow night. Sad huh. Your pics definitely made me jealous.

Gigi said...

you are very creative - and such a lovely day for a walk with a beautiful view to encourage you along. Thanks

Damozel said...

What a beautiful piece (the words as well as the pictures). I couldn't stop looking at the birds. I felt restored after reading your post. By the way, your goal of joy is very inspiring. Funny how it never occurs to me that aspiring to it might be a way to achieve it.

Thanks for visiting us!

Nice pics. I love the outdoors and these give me an idea for my next TT. The leaves are just starting to change here in NW Arkansas.
Thanks for stopping by. Come again and read the other posts.

how did you even see that ant?? I had to blow up the picture to even tell what it was....amazing. J left you a comment about her picture. We lost that one when our computor crashed last year.

Katia said...

That is a wonderful photo story!! Gorgeous photos - gorgeous place. I have nowhere like that to take a walk in, and that is sad!

Though I, too, am a bit alarmed by the scary hula hoopers! ;-)

Happy TT!

Thank you for the very beautiful reminder that nature and meditation can heal. Happy TT!

Brenda ND said...

Wow, your photos are so good, I feel like I was on the hike with you. Thanks.

Janet said...

oh, that was just so great! Reminds me of my walks in the woods, especially the one in Vermont a few weekends ago; was that a moosetrack?

Isn't it funny how many tree trunks have heart shapes on them? I've noticed that alot!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Another wonderful one!! Very clever and the pictures are fabulous.

What animal left that track? I can't see it well enough to be able to ... umm, guess. *blush*

Happy TT!

Great post with beutiful photos. I saw a heart in that tree stump. Which makes me think of a cloud photo I need to post....Thanks for a beautiful, personal TT.

julia said...

Really lovely TT. The Hula Hooper warning sign is very thoughtful - never know when they're going to crop up. I love the shot of the hollowed out stump (#9), the red berries (#5) and the heart in the bark (#2) best of all.

Mary said...

Gorgeous photos. Yes, getting in tune with nature can lift our spirits and help us to feel better. Today must have been a day for the blahs. I had them too.
