Sammamish Trail Misty Walk: A Dedication <3

Posted by

Even though the trail is long, mostly flat, and smooth (thanks to a paved path), still, almost every turn seems to bring a new perspective....something new to enjoy!
Mother nature adds a great deal to these surprises, as the weather from day to day can vary greatly
This particular morning featured a clear sky above, but a misty light fog down at the lower elevations....
I came around the corner, looked up towards the hillsides and saw the layers of fog just hanging there!! I can't tell you how much I am impacted when I see things like that, with the layers of fog and the trees still visible through the haze! To me, things like this are truly spiritual.
So, with that in mind I would like to dedicate this image to you: all my friends at AM3 <3 ;-) I hope you enjoy.

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
