What DO I see in Nature? Beauty…becoming my metaphor for melancholy. Not depressing, rather, embracing the fullness of being fully present.
One of my oldest and dearest friends spends her summers at 9 thousand feet, (sort of ) near Guffey, Colorado. That would be about 2 hours west of Colorado Springs. In one day we had sun, wind, clouds, torrential rain, hail, sleet, snow, cold.
I love this place. It speaks to me through the clouds, native gramma grasses, the trees that grow so strong at this altitude. In the natural world, the strongest survive here. Bye for now, friend.
Southern Wyoming also had its share of wildfires this summer…
I went up there a few weeks after the burn to see the land of some friends who almost lost their home to one of the wildfires…adobe walls, a metal roof, rocky landscaping and a LOT of dedicated firefiighters were able to save it! I didn’t photograph the house, but instead investigated the land surrounding it.

iPhoneography, this is part of a series “First Day”, based on using the winter sunrise as an integral part of my image composites. The rising sun indicates rebirth, starting over, hope.

Best kind of hill…the anthill
