A New & Stormy Piece

A Stormy New Piece

I thought I’d keep it simple today. Simplicity is goooood. Simple for me today is posting one of my new pieces, taken a couple of weeks ago as the waves of thunderstorms we’ve been having lately first began streaming through. They’re the ones that make for BOOMING sunsets… and they only happen in just this way once a year. It’s been a particularly awesome season so far (it’s been RAINING! Yay!)… some say it’s because of El Niño and that we’re in for a record-breaking winter. True or not true? I dunno. But it makes me want to start battening down the hatches NOW!

This moment happened at Donner Summit in Truckee, California. It sums up how much I love it here… the expansive, soaring, so-glorious-it-makes-your-heart-FULL feeling I get whenever I’m home in the mountains. A single frame just wasn’t going to scoop it all up… so I created a pano image with right around 8 frames of super boomin’ sunsetty goodness. Even at that, there alot was left over. Hey, I’m not that greedy! Hope you enjoy…

Big Message, Few Words.

The Mighty Visual Aid

I love visual aids. Y’know, images that just say it all – and then some – with no words at all.

It’s a little awkward when you put one on your blog, then proceed to use a bunch of words to talk about it. Kind of defeats the purpose, don’tcha think?

So I’m gonna go minimalist here;

The big picture.
The final hump.
The top that awaits just past the hardest climb yet… and you can’t see it from where you are.
The view: breathtaking
The scope: epic
You in the midst of it all: tiny.
Just keep going. You’re doing great… and you’re almost there!

Thanks so much for coming to my visual aid. Please continue now with your previously scheduled activities. 😀
