Sunday Morning: Home

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


My Brother Lorne sent me a link to Douglas Noblet’s Wild Air Photography site.  We grew up in the Kootenays in Southeastern, British Columbia, Canada.  Douglas’ pictures left me in wonder.  As a child growing up, you don’t fully appreciate what is out your back door.  Doug’s awesome photographs make my heart swell with pride and leave me inspired.  About earth.  About nature.  About home.  Good Sunday morning.

    “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 off like autumn leaves.”. -John Muir

    Minus 23C – or minus 9F – in some of these gorgeous mountainous areas this morning. No running today, I’m afraid.
    Love the slide show.

  7. I drove through that area on my way to Banff a couple of years ago. Both British Columbia and Alberta are beautiful beyond words. I can’t wait to go back.

  8. Nature and beauty are all around us, David – we just have to stop and look and enjoy. My special walk is on Zuckerberg Island, walk through the trees and have a “forest bath”, makes me feel so well in tune with nature. Do you remember Z. Island, David??? Merry Christmas to you and your famil – and the best in the New Year!!!
