Thanks Dan, Heather, and Sky for your comments.

Sky, regarding the chapel, it is where I attended summer camp for several years as a child. Although I don't remember the chapel ever being as impressive as it appears now, this place holds some of my strongest childhood memories. Now I see it as one of the most impressive examples of architecture that fits perfectly within it's natural surroundings.

Breathtakingly stunning!

I can find no greater natural beauty than when I stare out over the green valleys and in the distance I see those amazing mountain peaks.

Your photographs truly leave me speechless and yearning to escape this flat concrete world I live in most of the year. You are so blessed to experience "life at its best!" Thank you so much for sharing such beauty.

Hi dear Scott, These are STUNNING!!! I lived in the Rockies when I was younger and I can honestly say that there is NOTHING like the rockies in summer. Since I love photographing water I loved the water shot...then I wanted to move into the little stone church and LIVE there in it. I'm serious. That's the kind of place I picture myself moving to someday...maybe building with my own hands. Ooooh, these just took my breath away. Such treasure photos.

PS Loved your barefoot hiking comment. Thought of you yesterday when I ran two miles up a mountain trail and walked/jogged back down two miles...ALL BAREFOOT. :) :) I loved it!!! It was pure bliss. I waded in the creek at the two mile point on the trail. It was like sticking my feet into a glass of water FULL of ice cubes. :) All my hiking is now barefoot...I just couldn't be bothered making another pair of handmade moccasins. So I use what I was born with. And do you know, I came home feeling like I had danced with the creator. I guess I did! :) :)
Hugs and Happy Feet!
Robin

Fantastic. What the United Kingdom has by way of heritage and architecture you guys more than make up for in landscapes.

Scott said...

Thank you all for your kind comments! I see some familiar friends and some new visitors as well; thank you most sincerely. These scenics are not my typical shutter-fare, but I could not let them sit on my computer any longer - I had to share. Look for more good stuff to come, soon - only after life slows down from it's current speed-of-light tempo.

Robin, I've been building my feet toughness up and it does feel good so to go barefoot!

Hi Scott, just stopped by to say "Hi" and how are you? It's been pretty hectic here. Not getting in as much hiking as I would like due to my current work load, but I sure love it when I get a chance to get out and be with nature for a day. I want to out in it ALL day, everyday. I'm still hiking barefoot and went up a really steep rocky mountain the other day and at the top was a 360 degree view. So much blue and green here now due to all the rain we've had this year. I felt like I stood on top of heaven. Such bliss. Hugs to you my friend, Robin
