Meandering with camera…
Somewhere near Elberta, Utah
I live not in myself, but I become
Portion of that around me: and to me
High mountains are a feeling, but the hum
of human cities torture.
― George Gordon Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage
I have always wanted to go to Utah Gunta !! Wonderful photo!
I’m happy that you were able to revisit that area….where lonesome is a very good thing……how nice. 🙂
It was way beyond ‘nice’…. 😀
Yes…they are a feeling, one of those deep core feelings that seem to inform all else within…you know…. Very nice, Gunta…speaks to Home inside of me……
It was what my trip was all about… such a pleasure to revisit a scene so close to my heart. The places where lonesome is a very good thing…
Even though not a lovely coastline shot, this photo makes me wish I had boots on the ground. Would love to walk right into those mountains. 🙂
These mountains take a close second in my heart after my beloved beach… they really are majestic and thrilling…. pity the weather is so awful. All extremes with little mild weather in between. I was lucky on this trip to catch that mild weather (neither too hot or too cold), with those amazing clouds.
Gorgeous photos, Gunta. The landscapes you have seen! 🙂
The landscapes were breathtaking in places…. along the river and in the mountains. The stretches of desert in between, not quite so much. 😉
Oddly enough though… no alligators or bizarre gold pinkie nails with safety chains. 😀
Looking through these pics almost makes me want to go back, but I know the weather won’t remain as perfect as I had it. The clouds were just insanely gorgeous.
Very nicely done Gunta!
Thanks Phil. I had plenty good stuff to work with.
I’m absolutely Loving your pics!
Amazing view, excellent captured… 🙂
Thank you sir drake…
My kind of place! Thanks for sending that one our way!
You’re most welcome. I’m more than happy to share.
It does look lonesome… ;(
Oh, but it’s a perfect kind of lonesome…. 😀
Great view 🙂
Perfect poem for this magnificent image. The clouds over those mountains are so beautiful, like icing on a cake!
What a delightful metaphor for the clouds over mountains… I have no idea what magic it is that brings me these seemingly perfect quotes at the right moment, but I don’t want it to stop. 😉
Reblogged this on Travis Caulfield's blog and commented:
That’s a really lovely composition Gunta and a magnificent view!
Thanks, Chilli…. I was so very lucky to have those marvelous clouds show up for me.
A very pretty picture. I can see this as a painting. Good job.
Super composition and agIn we’re drawn to the mountains in the cleft.
The scenics of the mountains are a marvel… if it weren’t for the weather extremes and the explosive growth of human cities, I would consider living there again. What you don’t see (for the most part) is the effort it took to dodge around power lines and tacky McMansions sprouting everywhere like mushrooms. Such is progress.
Real wilderness is special 😦 Mind you, our expectations for healthcare, communication and access to the rest of the world does make finding true seclusion something you have to think twice about 😉
Ahhh… that’s the real dilemma, isn’t it? One I’m all too familiar with. 😦
Do you get tired of reading how AMAZING I think each of your photos is? I hope not. I love the abundant contrasts in this photo. And the poem fits the photo… and you… perfectly!
Do you suppose one can ever get tired of such extravagant praise? Thank you!
But here you see why I opted for the peanut butter sandwich and a hasty departure as those miraculous clouds called to me….. 😀
