Quiet Beauty

There is beauty all around and sometimes it is in the unexpected,often in the quiet moments surrounding sunset.

The underside of an Oak leaf is as pretty as the top side.


The simple beauty of a Daisy often goes unappreciated. 


We admire the beauty of a rose or other brightly coloured flower,but what about the understated beauty of grasses in bloom?

 The setting sun highlights the massive Bison and makes them look almost gentle.All the little specks in the air are insects,you can also faintly see the marks of the strong fence keeping me safe from these animals.


I love taking pictures at sunset.Every blade of grass and each tiny grass flower is glowing in the calm of the setting sun.

As the sun sets,it paints the wispy clouds in beautiful colors. The earth hushes as the day comes to a close.

Closing Thought:
God sees you through the eyes of love.

  7. Perfect timing. I'm listening to Maximo Spodek instrumental piano as I view your Quiet Beauty photos. Wild foxtail is very pretty here right now.

  11. Great pictures! Often it is hard to catch the light that you see reflected through grass and leaves, etc., when you take a picture. You captured it beautifully.

  20. Almost missed this one.... Glad I didn't.... Love the BISON in the sunshine... Reminded me of the bison we saw while in the Tetons last August....

    The 'underside' of flowers and plants can be so interesting.... We just need to look for that beauty. We have a rose named "About Face"--and her undersides are as pretty or prettier than the topside....

    Hugs,
    Betsy
