Finding Beauty




Claudia from Dipity Road is hosting a new day called Finding Beauty. Claudia really takes the most gorgeous photographs and I just love the idea of finding the beauty that is all around us.



I love capturing the sunsets...

After The Rain

Sunset ReflectionThe other night heading back from New Hampshire I could see the sunset in the distance and it was calling me. I turned off an exit and was clueless to where I was, but I followed the sunset and arrived here just in time to capture the last bits.

Sunset ReflectionLast week while in Concord, I took this one overlooking Walden Pond.

Sunset ReflectionDown by Old Silver Beach on the Cape, one night on the way home I just had to capture this sky. It looked like a staircase from heaven was dancing in the middle of this beautiful sunset. Turned out it was the Fall Equinox.

Wow - totally gorgeous. Vermont seems to be the New England state everyone talks about but when I went there I thought NH was THE most beautiful of them all. How lucky you are to live near this beautiful place. Have a wonderful day, Karen!

Oh Karen,
These shots are breathtakingly beautiful... I would love to take a drive with you-- BETTER yet to be of neighbor of yours and to enjoy your company and watch you enjoy the beauty around you.

Also, thank you for being such a good friend and participating with us all.

I find it fascinating that you "answer the call." I've heard the call; I do not answer. I say that I have no time for such things; I see what I am missing.

Beautiful, no, exquisite photos, as always.

Happy Friday to you!

Fabulous photos, I love sunsets. But the one with the balloons is my favorite also, such a different perspective. Always fun to see what another sees with through their camera's eye. Thanks for sharing.

Claudie said...

Hi Karen
I also LOVE the balloon sunset. Spectacular. We live on the river and face West...our sunsets are magical like the ones you captured along your path.
Happy FFB
Love Claudie

Oh Karen, I missed this post this morning when I was trying to catch up before I went to work! It is beautiful, as always! Thank you also for visiting my writing blog. Yes, writing is such a powerful tool to help clarify things. I need that in my life right now; I have so many things on my plate, I can't even think straight!! When I am done with my master's thesis defense next week and my final class at the end of the month, I hope to really take the plunge and write more. Thank you for your support my friend! Anita

These shots are just - well every adjective I wanted to use has been used already! Truly, they are breathtaking. I love the perspective of the shot with the balloons, how fun! And the sunset reflecting off the snow in the first is amazing. Kathy

Hello there dear Karen,
My long lost bloggy friend! I am sorry I have not been over to visit your absolutely fabulous blog in a while! It is always a pleasure to visit here. I like the Friday them! It suits you well and the picture used in the button for the "Finding the Beauty" theme is absolutely gorgeous! Is that a home from someone's dream? Can that really be real? If it is I want to know where I can find that place...or is it a storefront...has to be a storefront.
Anyway, enough of that. I've missed your blog.
(((Hugs))),
