Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean.
I have had the pleasure of watching my grandchild for the past week while her parents skied in Aspen, CO. Okay, I would hardly term a week in a condo in Aspen a retreat in the sense that John Muir speaks of. But, there are places in and around Aspen that can touch you in a very special way.
Some of my favorite art pieces had their start as photos from those spots. And so, whenever I could slip away this week or manage a walk with my grandchild, I had my camera out and was snapping away. The weather throughout the week was changeable so I took advantage to capture different lighting situations. I am hoping that some of the photos will provide the spark to build upon my last Colorado piece, Aspen.
Here are a few of the photos I took during the week:
I will keep you posted on my progress!
