Hill Panorama

Six Photograph Panorama

   look up 
      into 
these cool 
green hills!

look again,
   and see a
   beautiful
      mountain
just behind

   (thrown up
   by ancient
   megathrust
earthquakes)

   sometimes
   disasters
have upsides.
   don't panic!

rugged rock,
   broken 
mountains,

   shattered 
   crust of 
planet earth

   but it is
beautiful,
   whatever
      events
we must
live through

   let's do
   that too:
      become
beautiful!

    ☺, you are a master…

    You so right Murray,
    (thrown up

    megathrust

    This is a spectacular event, I’m such a spoilt child, why would I deny myself the brilliance even when the gut is falling apart.
    So much blood sweat and tears,
    I appreciate, when it gets too much I can always close the chapter for the day.
    (but it is
    beautiful,
    whatever
    events
    we must
    live through)
    And you’ve laboured so hard, don’t mind me I will catch up along the way.
    Your are beautiful.

      Yes Abby. Six or seven overlapping vertical photographs, joined together in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. With the lens I used, there was very little distortion, so it worked fairly well. (Better, I think, than currently available technology to do it in one shot.)

        Wonderful words indeed! That echo my own sentiments 100%. We cannot not write. We share because we can’t just leave our scribblings in a notebook in a drawer…when others might derive something from seeing them β€πŸ™‚πŸŒ»

        Thanks d.a.! Sometimes I write things other people feel but cannot say. Some of these things are beautiful. That echoes with my thought: that we are all beautiful. With some people, it is quite easy to see that. With others, you have to look a bit harder.

        If I can get echoes or reflections happening in people and they can see how beautiful they are, I would be happy about that.

        Wonderful!
        As we all know, reading things that we cannot ourselves express is marvellously uplifting and even healing on occasion. Hence yet another reason to share.
        Keep them coming!

        We are in a late hot spell. Almost 40C (100F) in the afternoon. We have realised that going out in the afternoon is too ugly hot!

        We have a giant eastern maple nearby. It gets bright orangey-red leaves in about 2, 2 1/2 months. That should be the first place I go shooting autumn leaves.

        Maple syrup is expensive here. That happens a few thousand miles east. But if we choose, we can get it in most grocery stores.

        There is a tree that I suspect is a sugar maple. It’s probably 150 years old or more (in somebody else’s front yard…

        We live more than a hundred miles west of the Rocky mountains, and roughly the same distance north of Yellowstone. Sugar maples don’t naturally grow here.
