Walk and Click Wednesdays #12: Stillness

Recently, I've enjoyed the sense of stillness as I wander.

Yesterday, a friend and Kobi and I walked South Mesa Trail near Eldorado Springs. Although it was pretty brown, Juli kept pointing out tiny little berries on the trees and bushes. So I took pictures. I captured more than berries ... mountains ... trails, blue sky ... and stillness.


The Rocky Mountains ... majestic as ever.


Yucca pods ... spent.


The disappearing trail ... where do these trails take us? What will we discover?


Reaching for the sky ... a patch of blue ... where dream are held.

All images above taken with a Nikon D5000.

This evening I went out for my "obligatory" walk with Kobi just before sunset. The sliver of the moon hung in the sky as an airplane aimed almost directly at it. At the horizon the silhouettes of leafless trees stood still.

I believe it might be that time of year that entices us to stand still, observe, and listen. While walking this path near home, the cattle were lowing as they seemed to have a mission to get somewhere, unlike the times they just graze in the field.

Hope you're all having a great week. I look forward to seeing you here for Walk and Click Wednesdays. Can't wait to see what you saw on your strolls.

Please join me in the adventure. The only "requirement" other than those below is that you go out walking and take some pictures. Please keep in mind that you don't have to walk, take pictures, process them, and post all on Wednesday ... take the weekend before to explore and a few days to process your photos ... then link up.

Walk and Click Wednesdays (WCW) Guidelines:

Are you new to Walk and Click Wednesdays? The party will open on Wednesday and close on Saturday at midnight.

Here are just a few guidelines to keep everyone on target.
  • Please link directly to your WCW blog post or the specific flickr image, not to your main blog url or flickr stream url. Please do not link to an online shop.
  • Please link back to laf Custom Designs. I'd love it if you'd share my WCW button on your blog (it's over there on the sidebar--see it?--just under the Friends Who Love It Here icons). It will also serve as a reminder to you since I know you all have a lot going on in your lives.
  • Please visit the other WCW participants and share the love. Gotta get this party goin' on.
Have a great weekend and find some time to walk and click. ;->
