Second Picture:

“Rays from the sunrise drew forth the buds and stretched them into long stalks,
lifted up sap in noiseless streams, opened petals, and sucked out scents in invisible jets and breathings.”

You take amazing photos. The Pollock photo, in particular reminds me of how I felt when I saw his work "live" for the first time at San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art last year. I just stood there and took him in.

I've posted my Wordless Wednesday entry here and hope you'll drop by for a visit:

The sunset is beautiful....but the first photo is VERY interesting. I really like it.

martie said...

Nice - I really like the colours in your sunset!

I guess the sun picture could double as a sunrise and a sunset. All I know is it really set my day off nicely when I was walking out to the truck to go to work. I am lucky I live on top of a hill.
If I could just get my neighbor to lower his house a little :lol: I would be able to make some panoramic pictures.

Thanks for visiting and I hope everyone has a Happy WW and a great rest of the week.

I saw a huge Jackson Pollock painting at the U. of Iowa museum of all places. Apparently the taught there once and left them a large painting. The sunset is quite impressive. Must be the pollution from China?
