Sheer Joy

Halcyon days
of pure 'Monet' moments,
breathing in beauty,
drenched in light,
tissue thin petals,
sweet sassy stamens,
seductive poppy
 how you delight.

The purest joy I know
is when I'm totally in the moments
 with my camera

Share the Joy Thursday

I love being behind the lens too -- and tweaking in Photoshop when required -- and making little video presentations. I can be totally lost in ecstasy for hours.

xoxo,
Noelle

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture.
