This week left a lot to be desired weather wise, but after all it is December so I really can't complain. Besides I had a quick visit from my youngest who was up from Portland for a few hours! Always fun!  And I dug through my files and enjoyed remembering those better weather days of yore!!

Know how to live the time that is given you.
Dario Fo

When what we are is what we want to be, that's happiness.
Malcolm Forbes
There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.
Epictetus
It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

Great I love these pics, your sky posts are always amazing! The likes of that first photo I've seen just once in my lifetime in Turkey. For me that scene is so mystical, maybe because we don't have that here in the tropics. By the way, since this morning, i have been waiting for the OWW meme to come up, but I am already about to sleep and it is still not up. Tomorrow morning when i wake up a lot of entries will already be there, hahaha! I guess our time difference doesn't suit my posting time.

Ever so beautiful, Sylvia. Love the way you seem to get those colours and those wispy clouds in your shots!

This is a lovely look at your world as usual, Sylvia. Wondering if the seagulls are having a discussion about that one crow that is hanging around. :)

clairz said...

Oh, those lovely Washington mountains--they still grab at my heart although we haven't lived there for almost 30 years! Thank you for sharing your world, Sylvia.

All your shots are so beautiful! I especially like the one with the birds.

stardust said...

All is so true about happiness. I like the view of snow-capped mountain ranges over the sea.

I’m amazed how limitless your friend’s creativeness. What fun and interesting formula! It must be derived from your smiles. Have happy days ahead, Sylvia.

Beautiful shots as always, Sylvia. Sometimes grey skies, rain, and fog can create a wonderful feeling of its own, especially in the trees - I've got a couple of shots from my visit to your area like that. I hope you're having a great week, and give Sam a pat from me and Socks.

Genie said...

Your captures of the skies around and above you are awesome. You have such a fine eye for the perfect shots. The colors and feelings you share are wonderful. You are so very talented. Thank you so much for sharing your photographic art with all of us week after week. genie

Those last 2 shots get my vote Sylvia - just gorgeous.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - really like that collection of gulls, and the last shot is rather splendid too.

Seems we were not the only people to miss out on the eclipse - well there is always 2014!!

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Oh Sylvia, the snow on the mountains mimics the birds. What a wonderful coupling of photos. Love your skies as well. You really are quite a photographer.

Hope you have clear skies ahead . . .

Gemma Wiseman said...

These colourful views of your world are mesmerising! Smiled when I saw the birds gathered on the road! But especially love the beautiful play of light in reflection and scudding clouds in the last two photos!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
