Heavy rains lately have melted all of the lower elevation snow, but there is more coming in the next few days. The clouds lifted a little today and I was happy to see that the higher mountain tops have lots of snow!
Each photo has something different to offer. I’m especially taken with the third — the lone tree against the elements. The tree in the first photo is so graceful. It reminds me of the trees I used to draw in grade school art class. I wasn’t much of an artist, but I could do a passable tree.
We both love trees, don’t we! I’ve watched that lone tree grow on the cliff over the years. Amazingly, it has done well and I enjoy seeing the changes. It’s about twice the size now than it was when I first saw it.
I’m glad that you enjoy the photos. There are so many scenes that captivate me too. The beauty of nature offsets the more harsh thing that we encounter as we go our ways. I’m very fortunate to have so much available nearby.
These were valley clouds which can be lovely, but I usually like better the mountain clouds. There is an other world feeling when one is inside those clouds. When one of them opens a window, you can see a hundred miles.
