… fall is just around the corner and it is my favorite time of year … the heat and noise of summer is coming to a close and earth begins shutting down for the season as winter and the time of rest is around the corner.
The shot above I took on a relatively quiet day at the peaks and in this view you are looking roughly to the north with Agassiz Peak in the foreground and the ridgeline running north to Humphreys Peak. Agassiz tops out at 12,360′ and Humphreys at 12,637′. Just to the right of Humphreys you can see Aubineau peak just above the ridgeline and on the right from right to left you have Doyle and Fremont (off frame) Peaks. The winds were very light on this day and just after I took this shot I dove over the edge below and to the right of Agassiz Peak into the inner basin … a day to play in the mountains.
The photo below was taken at Bubbling Ponds Fishery in Page Springs, no wind and very shallow water with beautiful lighting. I should have called this one “Muddy Feet.” The water was only a few inches deep and the mud collected on the mallards feet and the reflection gives a better look at them.
Into another beautiful day filled with promise and awaiting our decisions as to what kind of a day we will have … always our choice as to how we perceive and rank the day. Mine is going to be a beautiful day filled with joy! Hope you join me in it.
Let me forgive much, forget more;
Let me close my eyes and fall half asleep,
That the pictures may grow softer and stiller,
And the life, O thou God! again grow gentle.
