Spring on the Chaparral

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

~ From Auguries of Innocence, William Blake


  1. wow, wow, WOW!
    Pure beauty!
    You know how to shoot.........


  2. Looks like someone has been playing around with a macro lens ??? For our pure pleasure...

    PS just posted a picture of a mutual friend which you may enjoy...

    How lucky you are to go walking in such places btw...

    PPS the WV is "ectomyof", as in how the ectomyof do they come up with these ridiculous things I have to type in order to post a comment ???

  3. Dear BLOGitse,

    Oh, if you could only see all the ones that didn't come out! Thanks.

  4. Hi Owen,

    Nope, no macro lens. Just the 58mm and some actually with the telephoto just for experimentation purposes that worked out.

    Just got back here from your blog and enjoyed tagging along from afar. It's so cool you guys got together for the Erwitt outing. I'm sure you all left charged up, inspired, and at one with the universe.

  5. Wow, what beauty. These seem so real that I'm sneezing just looking at them. ;)

    Those droplets are just stunning. I feel like I could lost in one just by touching it... hmm, now there's an idea for a story to file away for later.

    Thanks for letting us tag-a-long on your walk. :)

  6. Hey Amy,

    Talk about sneezing, I've been pulling off long series of sneezes like 10 in a row! Hey, that story line sounds Intriguing.

    And it's I who should thank you!

  7. These shots are like little slices of heaven. I love the way you capture the beauty around you. Amazing shots!

  8. Thank you James! Your kind words are so appreciated. I was a little down tonight and you brought me right back up!

  9. another Blake, and so marvelous :-)

    they are truly amazing, i don't think i have ever seen such freshness, the water seems to hold the essence of transparent heavens within...

  10. Yes Roxana,

    Your William Blake post inspired me quite a bit as you can see.
