the whole world,
as we experience it visually,
comes to us through
the mystic realm of color.
our entire being is nourished by it.
this mystic quality of color
should likewise find
expression in a work of art.
~hans hoffmann

as pretty as.
the colors of summer are.
you can't deny.
the colors of the pending fall.
i am equally delighted today.
as a group of robins.
have blessed this morning.
with their song.
they are passers-by.
so i will savor their song.
as long as i can.
i will not take for granted.
for one moment.
the gift of.
sight and sound.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

Oh! What a treat and such a visual feast! I bow to the Queen of macro shots. Those are all stunning-even though spiders creep me out, those are gorgeous and sumptuous shots!

Takes to that place where I can 'just be'.

Love these shots Robin! It's nice getting back to my blog visiting habits again now that September is here. I knew yours would not disappoint. Much to my own surprise your series of spider webs were my delicate and rich in color. You are too right: nothing quite compares to nature's last stand of color before the deep brown sleep of winter.


This, dear Robin, just HAS TO BE your best work yet. I can't think of just one many come to mind. Your photos just blew me away with all their beauty!!! Marvelous and magical and beautiful and breathtaking...

Stunning spider web photos ~ Wow.

The colors of nature are so beautiful.

I love the thistle, at least I think the purple flower is a thistle!

Have a wonderful weekend.
