Milford Sound

Milford Sound was up near the top of my bucket list of places to photograph.  Alas, the weather did not permit me get the photos I would have hoped for.  It was a beautiful evening just the same.DSC_2092 DSC_2116 DSC_2201hdr “I said, I prefer the ocean when it’s gray. Or not really gray. A pale, in-between color. It reminds me of waiting for something good to happen.”
― Lauren OliverDSC_2199hdr DSC_2130 DSC_2207hdr Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can’t even see the mountain for the clouds.― Toni MorrisonDSC_2212 But under a tall tree will I lie
And let the clouds go sailing by”

“Conjoiner rejoinder poisoner concealer revelator. Look at it, rising up and rising down, taking everything with it.”
“What’s that?” Anna asked.

Lake Hawea

“Do tears not yet spilled wait in small lakes?”
― Pablo Neruda “Joy, sorrow, tears, lamentation, laughter — to all these music gives voice, but in such a way that we are transported from the world of unrest to a world of peace, and see reality in a new way, as if we were sitting by a mountain lake and contemplating hills and woods and clouds in the tranquil and fathomless water.” ― Albert Schweitzer

The streams shall run in gladness,
The lakes shall shine and burn,
And sorrow fail and sadness
At the Mountain-king’s return!”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit


Mt. Cook


“What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains.”
― Tennessee Williams “You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
― Dr. Seuss“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.”
― Sylvia Plath     “The mountains are calling and I must go.”
― John Muir    “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
― John Muir

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

― William Wordsworth

   “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
― Oscar Wilde “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
― Stephen Hawking “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
― Douglas Adams
