Memory

I go to the place

Where the big trees are,

And stand.

I see the sunlight

Shining through centuries

of limbs and branches.

I breathe the air filtered

By these giants of the mountains

and feel small and safe

and grateful

at their feet.

This app is Glaze

And Percolater.

I have lots of fun with my apps. They have all kinds of options and .you can achieve many different looks, the fun is in experimenting.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Elemental

The elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water, are on display in Yellowstone National Park. But not quite in the obvious way. 

The fire is the huge magma chamber underneath the caldera which superheats the water into highly pressured steam which erupts with great violence in the geysers. The breeze blows with the smell of sulfur and pushes the steam around until it dissipates. 

I give you Old Faithful. 


And Grande Geyser
