These are not merely deserts, plants, mountains and flowers when seen through your lens--they are sheer enchantment and exquisite beauty. Poetic visions.
So beautiful....these pictures have beautiful clarity and colors.The poem is amazing...BG
The words and images intertwine as a meditation. Thanks!
Breathtaking! The words and images lift the mind to another level. Transcendent.Thank you.
Sigh.... images and words are just perfect!
You must have known you had something when you took the first shot: it is marvelous. It is real and unreal all at the same moment, which is far more difficult to achieve than that costless and curious ability we have of swallowing up sun and earth simultaneously.
This combination is truly beautiful. I keep scrolling up and down for the impact of colors. You bring the west alive. So glad to have discovered your blog. You understand beauty
Each photo is unique. The gold and black in the first photo puzzles me but intrigues me. The wildflowers beckon I tell you. I do so love to see photos that remind me of where I grew up.
Jeux d'ombre des dunes super.
If you switch #2 and #3, they'd be in the order of my favorites. The color saturation in 1 and 3, plus the fact that it's kind of an unusual mustard-y color, plus the pattern of shapes (the swoop in 1 and the sort of rambling assault in 3)--all that strikes me as unusual, in a good, powerful way. I usually like landscapes, so your 2 and 4 are also nice for me, but your 1 and 3 are something more--really strong, Stickup. Nice. Thanks for your latest visit and perceptive (as usual) comment. You and PA have really hit on something, I think. I hope I can and do take time to respond in full before too long. Nice to have found you, Stickup!
Everything is beautiful in this post, everything is delicately composed , each single grain of sand ,each leaf of plants, the golden textures are rich and warm ...The first one is incredibly beautiful, I love the play between light and shadows, it's a pure delight.A great moment of poetry and softness. Bravo is very successful! :)♥
Oh, what lusciousness! That first image totally took my breath away, Stickup. I did not want to scroll away from it, but was engaged in the words and wanted to see what came next. (Do not know that song, and am a bit confused...are the words taken from Rushdie's novel by that name?)The antique look of the close up image is wondrous.Your love affair with the desert went epic with this post, you artist, you.
These images are wonderful! I tried to pick a favorite but I couldn't because they're all so good!
As always I'm simply awed by your ability to compose and frame the elements of each visual image to create a mood.
That top photo is a gem. It's hard to guess what the scale is but it powerfully sends me in another world.
Beautiful words and AMAZING photos. Where many just see arid lands you see beauty and that beauty totally shows up in your photos. You are so talented...
Beautiful Edition, such as warm tonalidads. The first is a wonder!Kisses!
Great golden post! All are beautiful but I especially like the top photo, it's gorgeous!
