Silent Saturday ~ Part Twenty

Dr. John and my granddaughter, Georgia Rose visited the Sandia Crest!!  Here are some of the pictures that they took.  Nice work too!!



































As you can see; they had quite the time of it!!  Hope you enjoyed the tour of the Crest.  It is part of the beautiful Rocky Mountains.  Ten minutes from my house!!  What a view!!

Have a wonderful Fathers' Day weekend!!

May it be magical and blessed!!
Hugging you
SueAnn

It is such a beautiful and diverse world around us. Thank you for sharing the pictures of some of the beauty near you.

I particularly like the picture of a the seated hummingbird. Doesn't he (she?) look almost ungainly when still? A head almost the size of his (her?) body and yet, when it motion, they are the most beautifully graceful creatures. They make you think the word "hover" is the loveliest all of all words.

There he is, looking like he ought to have a name like "Fred", keeping his startling grace a secret, if even for just a moment. Great shot.

Ten minutes from your house????!?!? Seriously? No wonder you are such a heavenly gal... you LIVE in heaven.

Wow. I love the flowers, but that rock ridge and cool arcing rock formation (cliff thingy?) is simply breathtaking. Thank you so much for sharing these photos with us SueAnn!

PS: The Phantom of the Opera music came up with the post. Great pairing!

I like the purple flowers with aperture adjusted. i wonder if this was intentional or if your camera just did it for you. Nice shots either way.

Such pretty pictures, Sue Ann. How wonderful to have something take your breath away that's only 10 minutes from your house.

Beautiful place and its pics, lovely summery shots.

Breathtaking!

I LOOOVE the one of the little butterfly on the daffodil. You Do live in paradise!

And, Land of Shimp, I so hate to disagree with you, but...the hummingbird does NOT look like a Fred. Believe me, I know a Fred when I see one, and a "startling grace," secret or not, is NOT one of Fred's attributes!
