…Even through the storms of winter…

Still Winter

There is still some green – some life, some vibrancy.

Driving Shot - Trees

Mosses and Lichen on Rocks

Evergreens

Trees in the Sun

Our trip to Washington was wonderful in every way.  I got to see my dear friend.  I spent time with my amazing guy.  I saw incredible and inspirational sights and took copious amounts of photographs.  I learned about traditional textiles.  In my book, this is about as good as it gets.

The Northwest came at just the right time for me.  Work has been extremely hectic, and I really wanted/needed a get-away.   The earth/air/water out there just pulsated for me.  Seeing the mountains and the deep green trees was soothing to my soul.  Jenna and I both commented that we saw Project Spectrum inspiration everywhere.  Trees laced with winter snow?  Moss-covered stones?  all there and all perfect.  The travel was pure Project Spectrum:  and to me, that means finding the beauty in every thing.  It is the consciousness of being in a new place and witnessing and observing and enjoying the present moment.  It is the spiritual and emotional layers of the creative process.  It is witnessing something that touches your soul.

    Wow! That is so.. green! I didn’t even new green could be so.. green! It’s vibrant and full of energy and the promise of new life! We got a massive snowstorm on Sunday morning, and I feel like spring should be here already. Your pictures bring comfort in this gray and boring weather :D

    My favorite, however, has to be that teal in the colors of the lake. Amazing!

    Spectacular photos!

    Lady, you hit the nail on the head here. For me, the beautiful evergreens are the perfect antidote to our gray weather. They help remind me that all that rain supports lots of life and growth. They help give me hope that the sun will return someday!

    It was such a pleasure to have you here – Mary and Sufi agree. Please come back soon!!!
