Wanderings & observations – urban & rural.

TURNING INWARD

December.

Retreat.

Curling inward…

darkness.

Winter solstice…pulling

downward.

Stillness…

quiet.

  1. nice pictures… but what especially moved me this time, was the shot of the bay. Wishing you a beautiful new year.

    • And to you Shimon, I wish a New Year full of contentment, good health, great photographic opportunities,and just enough aggravation to keep you going! It was a silvery moment on the bay…

  2. Yep, that last image really did it for me, too. But then I’m a sucker for any kind of water scene.. :)

    • Thank you – we are dark now so we have to work with what we have, right?

      December 27, 2013 at 9:25 am

      • Yes exactly, but soon we have some more light… Still the light right now is lovely with a special glance!

  5. It’s blowing a hooligan here at the minute, Lynn, but your photos are the essence of tranquility, and very beautiful. Happy 2014 to you!

    • A hooligan?? We don’t get many of those here. The weather, like many of the people, is quite well behaved in Seattle. Happy 2014 to you too!

  8. As always Lynn I love your images and words! I am making a gallery wall in the family room as part of my multi-month long remodeling project and I just HAVE to have a photo of yours for the wall. Can I please?!? May I have permission to print out an image and include in the gallery? If yes, then well, the next hurdle is deciding which one. Oh my. Maybe I will need your permission to print two instead, or maybe three…. :-)

    • Ah, flattery is a good thing! I will “back channel” you, OK? Interesting that you’re willing to say multi-month, but you ain’t going to say year-long! :-)

      • Okay, you called me on it, multi-YEAR is truly the most accurate description but, well, hesitated on fessing up to that. But sincere about the gallery wall. I even got a mat cutter this week, so that along with my miter saw, well I am going to do some serious frame making! :-)

  9. The stillness in each shot is superb and what a reward that final view is! New Year best wishes to you and your family Lyn!
