Pictures for Pam, Day 182: Lovely Meadow in Evening Light

Pictures for Pam, Day 182: Lovely Meadow in Evening Light 

(+ 2 insets!) (Please view large to get a feeling of being there!)

Steve and I were busy today doing errands and that's kept us out rather late. While we were driving around we talked at one point about how things are changing for us...

You know when you travel for a couple of weeks and you come back and it seems like nothing has changed at your home but you feel like a different person? We are now back after our second trip of four days/three nights away. It doesn’t seem as if that should be enough to make a difference, but it really has. We feel as if our lives are morphing into something new. It is an odd kind of feeling but nice too.

Having an RV is giving us a freedom we have never experienced before. We have gained the ability to go wherever we want--and we get to bring our dog and parrot with us. It's a way to travel in a relaxed manner without a time frame if we decided to just wander. After dreaming for so long and saving our pennies to make it happen, it's such a strange sensation to recognize that we are actually reaping the rewards of our efforts. We are a bit shocked to be honest. At the same time, we are incredibly thankful for our good fortune.

Today's picture was taken on our last evening when Steve and I went on a long hike so I could take pictures along the way. As we were heading back, the light in this meadow was just so incredible that Steve and I just stood there and appreciated the view in front of us. How the leaves glowed, the grass shimmered, and the way the shadows streamed across the scene. Pure magic.

We'd planned on hot-footing it out to the lake to take pictures of the sun setting behind the forest and hills but decided to take the advice that so many have stated: stop hurrying from one thing to the next. Enjoy the moment. So we abandoned our initial plan. Our quick boogie to the lake became a slow stroll back to our camp with lots of pictures as we went. There will be other sunsets but the pretty sights we were seeing now deserved our attention, appreciation and enjoyment. We certainly made the right decision and both of us had a lovely time!

I am also including pictures of some ferns taken with my Sony (taken from the bridge in my last picture!) and a bumble bee resting under a stalk of flowers. (Anyone know what they are called?)

Pam, I totally loved what you said in my last picture's comments, "The marvelous difference it makes to be able to stay and grow into a place. New insights." You are so completely right about that and it's how we feel! There are so many things in this world which must be experienced in order to understand. That understanding takes a bit of time to settle into as well. Ok...we can do that! *BIG HUGS from southern Oregon!

THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL !

FROM FROM WHAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN I WILL ADD A LITTLE MORE HOME SPUN PHILOSOPHY.

TAKE A LIFE ROUTE FROM MISS MOLLY. YOU SEE DOGS LIVE IN THE MOMENT. YES THEY DREAM OF A FUTURE OF WALKS AND TREATS.. BUT THEY KNOW THE WISDOM OF HOLDING THE MOMENT TO THEM CLOSELY.

ITS SOMETHING WE SILLY HUMANS LOSE AS WE GROW.WE HAVE TO BE REMINDED THAT
TOMORROWS ADVENTURE IS A SREAM BUT THAT TODAYS EXPERIENCE IS NOW.. AND WE NEED TO LIVE IN THAT MOMENT.

I believe the flower is Large False Solomon's Seal but am not certain. Seeing the leaves would help since there are several plants with flowers like this. The Solomon's Seal has pleated alternate leaves on a stem two to three feet tall. In any case it is beautiful photo with the bumble bee doing his thing. The ferns are beautiful too, and the landscape is stunning with that hazy, quiet light. Looks like a perfect ending to a beautiful day.

Saw an Evening Grosbeak at the feeder this morning and the hummers are constantly at their feeders as well. We've seen both Calliopes and Black-chinned Hummers the last few days. A House Wren is building nest in one of the Bluebird boxes. Glad to have her, but I evict the Sparrows when they start using the boxes. The House Sparrows and Starlings (both non-natives) I do not like and would prefer they stayed away, which, of course, they don't.

Hot here. Supposed to get up into the 80's the next few days and the wildfire season has started already here in Washington. Had snow in Yellowstone, so from 20's to 80's is quite a change. Will probably go to a nursery and get some plants today. We like to do some herbs and tomatos in pots and will do a few flowers as well for the decks since the deer eat everything we plant in the yard.

Have to get out with a camera later today. The Camas and Desert Parsleys and who knows what else are blooming and I want to get some photos. Thought I saw some Sego Lilies from the car window yesterday and want to go see them as well. We have the Sagebrush Sego here. Will find whatever else has come into bloom the past weeks while we were away. Hate missing anything but hate just staying home as well.

Liked what you said about not trying to keep a schedule and hurrying from one thing to the next. We almost always do what we want and don't worry about changes in plans. Even in Yellowstone where we only had a day and half we didn't worry about not seeing everything and when there was something to see took our time. Makes life much more enjoyable and very much less stressful.

What a stunning atmosphere, Janet! It looks so great how the sunlight brightens the meadow and some trees. I like the insets too. I especially like the second inset with the bumblebee drinking nectar.

A wonderful landscape image Janet. I like the fresh green of the grass and the contrasting darker green of the trees. The misty background is really atmospheric! Just stunning!

Two super images in the PiPs: The beautiful green of the ferns are complemented very well by those lovely dappled shadows and you've captured their delicate details perfectly. In the second PiP, the sharpness and detail are spot on and the background is beautiful.

I take your point about not hurrying from one thing to the next. I find that sometimes I get so caught up in taking photos, I don't actually notice or appreciate the beauty that is around me!

RHH is correct with his flower I.D. Funnily enough I took a photo of one of these yesterday - I'll post it up at some stage :-))

What a fantastic photo Janet. I just love the variety of trees all sitting next to each other. It's so gorgeous with the light fading and the mist starting to rise to give everything a hazy glow. I fully agree with not hurrying to get to some place, while you seem to miss the beautiful things around you. I remember knowing a girl who'd just got married. She'd been "dying" to meet someone she would fall in love with, then when she met him, she was "dying to get married", then she got married, and then it was "I'm dying to have a house of our own" and when that happened - guess what she was "dying" to have children. I had a word with her and told her not to be in such a hurry for things, but to really enjoy what she has at every time. To appreciate the wonderful man she'd married and enjoy the new house, and if children came along - brilliant - but not to fret if it didn't happend straight away, but to enjoy her time with him. Unfortunately she didn't listen and she had two children and it was only after the second child was born, she decided that she wanted another man!!!

Hi again,
Have to go to son-in-law and daughter and kids in a bit for supper, so may not have time to finish this. Usually they come here on Saturday but since we were gone most of the week... We'll take Neal along. He likes the kids and the kids are comfortable with him.

Just got some photos of our oldest son helping his daughter's class do heart dissections (7th grade). Didn't get to do that stuff until high school, but he's a med-tech, so he has more opportunity than most. Would love to have seen the kids' reactions.

One of the twins stuffed a pea up his nose and had to be given a sort of CPR (successful) by his parents. Immediately tried to replace it with a piece of cheese. They are always into something hard to watch because there's two of them.

Going through photos from Michigan and Yellowstone and found a few keepers - grin! Don't know what I'm going to do with all the photos. I think I have somewhere around 85,000 on my computer, though some of those need to be deleted.

Didn't finish this. Had a cookout and put up bird feeders at their house. One of the girls did a project on hummingbirds and wanted a feeder put up and we had given her mom a feeder for Christmas, so that's finally taken care of.

Came home with a lot of Iris divisions. See if there's a place to plant them and whether or not they become deer fodder, like everything else. Had a deer in the back yard this morning eat off the trees. Have to train them to keep the lawn mowed.

Not much else that I can remember. Wanted to go for a walk today to see the Camas in bloom but never got to it and now the sun is setting. Maybe early tomorrow morning before Neal comes home for the day.

A lovely misty panorama and fine PiPs, Janet. I found your comments interesting (also Pam's) - it's very true that we all need to slow down and 'live in the moment' more than we do. Thank you very much for your very kind comments on my images.
