He went out the mountain to pray… Luke 6:12

Harbinger of Fall and Dear Followers…

Fall in the Sierra Nevada RangeSaturated light does not have to be the exclusive property of art or sunsets.  I have driven this stretch of road in the Tahoe National Forest many times and always thought it very ordinary.  But it was briefly transformed by this sunset, reminding me that the light in which we view our common settings and circumstances can make them less or more attractive.

To my followers, a BIG thank you.  My husband and I are preparing to depart for a trip and I’ll be out of touch for about 10 days.  I look forward to catching with everyone upon my return.  God bless.

  2. What a beautiful shot. Another example of how true the adage, “Find the light first,” is.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Common and unspectacular landscapes are difficult to photograph thus when you get a shot that really works it makes it all the more special. Have a safe trip.
