Solitude

Photo Challenge: Solitude

misty-morning

 

I’m fortunate to be able to be completely entranced by subtle changes in my world. This misty morning was intensely silent and reinforced my concept of solitude, which is: Solitude is not loneliness, it is the exquisite appreciation of aloneness and quiet connection.

Smell Like Dirt

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
― Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard’s Egg

Fun with Filters: This was originally a plain photograph of grasses and their shadows on the sidewalk. It’s easy to go overboard with filters, and for this challenge I really did!  –but it was challenging fun, and like most symmetrical pictures this one has a Rorschach Test quality to it. I see earth, bugs, leaves fighting for sunlight. What do you see?

Slow Cooker 2

Photo by Fluffy Pool

This is a photo of a simmering stew I made in the slow cooker and photographed for my recipe blog. I didn’t use this picture, because it wasn’t very helpful, but I kind of liked the lusciousness of the food in the cooker, the abstract quality of the photo, and the reflections in the glass lid, one of which is the iPhone that I used to take the picture.

 

Winter Wonderland and Mud

Ever wonder what it is like driving through the Rocky Mountain passes in winter? Here is a very short sample of our drive back to the interior of British Columbia from Vancouver, after Christmas:


Road conditions were actually good, since there was no ice and decent visibility on this trip.

The highest point of the Crowsnest Highway between Hope and Princeton is Allison Pass (el. 1,342 m or 4,403 ft), which is in the middle of Manning Provincial Park.
