These pictures were taken quite close to home. Within a half hour drive.
Sometimes I’m in awe of all the beauty surrounding me. Amongst the overwhelming amount of human suffering, the scenes of beauty stand out almost painfully. Like an oasis in a desert.
I am so thankful that I am able to recognize the magnificence. I feel blessed that when I see the unyielding mountains, the deep lakes, and the tall grasses and trees bowing to the wind, that it moves me to tears.
