More than enough for me

Panoramic vistas, soaring mountains, dramatic cliffs, dazzling blue sea. Of course I love all these things. But this morning the frost dusted fields and seedheads of one sort or another on the common-land by the river behind my house were all the beauty I need for today. There is enough quiet glory there to inspire me forever. Anything else is a bonus.

Hope you have an inspired day too. xx

Nature, even in its tiniest, quietest corners
is cradled by an unseen, symbiotic web of numbers. 
Exquisite art, exquisite science
blended by a maths so pure, so infinite
that beauty seen is only fleeting inflorescence 
amid the never ending flow of perfect counting.
Material moments in that numeric spiral,
deliciously caught in light and photons
delight my eye and cause my soul to sing.


  1. I'm loving January in the Acre.

    Beautiful. And not a lick of concrete.

  2. I agree Belinda, the sun coming up over the frozen countryside has certainly lifted my spirits today.

  15. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Brocanterie Derdijk.' Your photos are lovely, and some of the nature is incredible. While I was reading, I noticed that your interests are very similar to me and my daughters. We started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is so pretty, and I have enjoyed looking at all of your pictures. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

  16. I've just found your lovely blog these pictures are so beautiful! I went out when we had some frost recently and took loads of pictures I couldn't get enough of how amazing everything looked. Your hog weed pictures reminded me of a photo I took (http://wanderingstarrs.blogspot.com/2012/01/frosty-wanderings.html)
