Random glories of nature...


Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
~ Albert Einstein


If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.
~ Eleonora Duse


Drinking nature is an unquenchable thirst.
~ Berri Clove


Nature is the art of God.
~ Thomas Browne, Religio Medici, 1635


God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars.
~ Martin Luther


Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
~ Kahlil Gibran


I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.... People think pleasing God is all God care about. But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.
~ Alice Walker, The Color Purple, 1982


As you sit on the hillside, or lie prone under the trees of the forest, or sprawl wet-legged by a mountain stream, the great door, that does not look like a door, opens.
~ Stephen Graham, The Gentle Art of Tramping


The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Anne, I love this post. Great collection of beautiful images with equally beautiful quotes.

Thanks for making me smile!


Thanks Kathy! I wish I"d had my real camera with me for the last photo...just snapped it out the window with my cell phone on the way to work yesterday morning. So quality isn't the best, but the sky was absolutely magnificent!

Lovely post, Anne. I love all your images, and the quotes are great too.


Thanks Candi :) I'm a bit of a photo nut, I have to confess...but I figure if I take enough of them, some are bound to be half decent!



Just wanting to make sure that you realize you are the official photographer for the Gross Morne hiking.

I wish I could capture images the way you do, it is a gift.



Thanks my friend :) Oh yes, I'll have my camera in hand on that hike, for sure!! (And everywhere else we wander this summer!)
