clouds hovering on the mountain tops

Going back to the month of May…. when I traveled to Utah, a place I once lived for some fourteen years. I love these mountains second only to the coast where I now live.Utah-4933Wherever I am, the world comes after me. It offers me its busyness. It does not believe that I do not want it. Now I understand why the old poets of China went so far and high into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.

  1. The mountains or the ocean…such a difficult decision. Why not both? To live in an area where you have easy access to both would be perfection. Lovely photo Gunta.


    • I think I’ve found that place… the Coast Range is right there. If that’s not high enough, there’s the Cascades just a bit further inland. But visiting other areas is still fun for a change of pace and scene.


    • Having experienced both pretty thoroughly, it’s really hard to choose between them. But I think I missed the coast far more while I lived in the mountains. To be honest, I’m far closer to mountains right here on the coast. Mt Shasta is less than a four hour drive from me. While the ocean was at least 15 hours on the road to visit.


    • Agree, but there’s one transition area where I wasn’t sure whether I was seeing cloud or mountain shape peeking through. The shot was taken back in May, so I don’t remember it that clearly.


    • I only wish my photography hadn’t been pushed to a back burner during the time I lived there. It is such a awe-inspiring wonderland for photography. There’s only so much you can capture on a visit. But the visit certainly was great fun.
