Prickly Pear at Bear Creek Lake: Photo by Noelle

Forgive the alliteration it was just too easy. Still, lying in the dirt for this shot, it seemed even I had become part of the scenery, the view. Amazing how much more beautiful the Earth is when you are lying close enough to smell her beauty. To see, up close, how curious and graceful her surface truly is.

    • By the way, I know the pleasure of lying on your belly in the grass, moss , sand or whatever, to take that special photo of the beauty that cried out to you.

  1. There’s something lovely about it, isn’t there? To forget where you are, what you’re wearing and just lie down and see what you see. I want to do more of it.

  2. I like the word tolerance in your post, potendono. We give up connection with nature often because we won’t tolerate the discomforts. The cragginess of rocks under our butt or dirt and bits of stone in our knees. Rain on our heads or cold, buffeting winds. Yet, we are refueled and invigorated by the very things we fear we can’t tolerate. Thank you so much for the visit.
