but somehow they do

Looks as though your Sis is in an incredibly beautiful spot - secluded and quiet.

HRG: I like the rock formation reaching into the sky on that last shot.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

I agree with Adam Ansel's words in regards to turning to photography when words are insufficient to say. Pictures can say the words better.

Even in those snow gathering clouds, their beauty is hidden in silver linings unraveled.

Glad to be back after being so slacked.

Carver said...

Wonderful sequence of shots. I love the cotton ball clouds in the first shot and the rocks are such a great contrast to the sky in the later ones.

Pacey said...

All that land looks empty but from what I have read it isn't. Lot of wildlife

Great photos, scenery and quotes. I love Ansel Adams, but this is the first time I read the Eudora Weltys quote. I love it and how true. Happy skywatching.

These are utterly gorgeous.

Love the last shot, with the rocks against the backdrop of the skies!

I love seeing your sister's photos - someday I REALLY want to make it out to Alaska.
