POTD: Beauty on the Boundary

POTD: Beauty on the BoundaryBeauty on the Boundary Bozeman, Montana 2012

I have passed a mountain peak and my soul is soaring in the Firmament of complete and unbound freedom; I am far, far away, my companions, and the clouds are Hiding the hills from my eyes. The valleys are becoming flooded with an ocean of silence, and the Hands of oblivion are engulfing the roads and the houses; The prairies and fields are disappearing behind a white specter That looks like the spring cloud, yellow as the candlelight And red as the twilight.                                                                                           –Kahlil Gibran]]>

  1. What perfect beautiful words to complement your photo. I am sitting at a local cafe having breakfast with friends, and the conversation has become political. I sincerely appreciate being transcended elsewhere for a moment.

  2. I concur! Gibran poetry is always moving to me and I enjoy it being paired with this image. Have you seen the work of Kate Breakey called Small Deaths? http://tinyurl.com/q3zlhqy
    Your photo also reminds me of one done by either Edward Weston or Minor White of a dead pelican.

    1. Kathy, I have seen Breakey’s work. She does some wonderful painted silver images, although I’m not as into death as a subject as she is. The dead pelican I think I remember was Edward Weston’s.
