~ Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #13 Look Up ~

When I start to feel down, I tell myself to look up and find light coming through those clouds, and to remember the ancient adage:

“And this, too, shall pass away.”

In spring, a bright blue sky glimpsed through fresh chartreuse-green leaves, lifts my thoughts and spirits.

As spring melts into summer, birds call from trees, inviting me to figure out what particular species I’m hearing.

Summer is a time to explore and visit new places. These Silver Cedars at Crater Lake State Park, Oregon, are a favorite looking up photo!

Autumn signals another bird migration, along with heightened intensity of color in deciduous foliage.

With winter comes snow …

“Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly (oh, yeah)
Fly right into the future”
Steve Miller

      When I was out at Long Beach, WA just last week, I didn’t see even one Bald Eagle. In late fall through early spring, I often will see up to three of them perched on poles on my morning beach walks.

    Wonderful choices this week Lindy Of course I’m partial to the eagle shots 😊

  4. Beautiful reminders to keep looking up. We’ve had a lot of “down” in these parts lately, so this helps me keep some perspective.
