Photography Captures Messages

20181021_1717591The wind quickened and the stormed continued to develop. Me?

20181021_1720411I happily drove south with my husband in the car. It was an opportunity which I couldn’t miss.

20181021_1720551No rainstorm was going to bound me indoors, keeping away from nature.

20181021_1721451The drive didn’t start out with rain. But once south of Turnagain Arm, Seward highway, heavy clouds moved low on the road onto the water and out to sea.

20181021_174528Wet terrain darkened the fall colors causing me to desire a hot drink. After coffee and a treat, I drove us back home to Anchorage.

20181021_174835With the rain pouring down and on coming cars lifting rainwater to my windshield, the view hid from my sight.

20181021_174543 Therefore, I had to stop now and then.

20181021_174637Once out the car, I not only enjoyed the beautiful scenic view, but the weather bath me as I engulfed myself with its refreshing wind and cold rain, allowing it to run down my face and wet hair on to my raincoat.

20181021_174813Then, I remembered a photographed of a leafless bush.

20181021_174714

I ponder about deleting it as I drove.

Once home, I reviewed the photos and something told me to keep the photo of the lonely bush.

It wasn’t until a week later, that I understand why it caught my attention.

A message waited there, captured in the photo just for me only to be released at an appointed time.

My heart not only had to understand the message, but comprehend its importance in my life.

I posted the messages on the actual photo on Instagram, Facebook and here, on WordPress, as a journal to remind me where I’ve been and what life’s circumstance I’ve overcome.

Nature speaks to my soul.

In time, I’m able to write what I’ve seen, felt or heard. Many time I don’t under stand why I felt compelled to take a picture. But I’ve learned, to rust the nudge and the reason will gurgle up from my own life experience.

I hope you enjoy this short outdoors exploration. I sure did.

Blessings, Lidia.😊

An Icy Outing

❄AN ICY EXPERIENCE❄

Summer is on the road
Heading north on its
Navigation

Soon, the icebergs will melt
But my icy experience
Is permanent

Alaska is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited or lived at. Never could I imagined, I would have found Portage Glacier changing beauty addicting. It’s as if, this place was my home and I have returned.

I’ve been here at this same spot four times since November of 2017. This glacier hasn’t seen the last of me. As long as I return to Anchorage, I will be coming to visit this therapeutic and freeing view. For the change of this exotic creation can become rapid, one never knows.

For now, while change is slow, I will enjoy its enormous sight. Alaska, has captured my heart with the wonders of its Great Land.

Worlds Under My Feet

Like footprints,
Bones wrapped
In lace, appeared
As If a gift
Been left
For me
To unearth
By photo edits.

Strange things
Air bubbles
Make when
Caught by
Drastic fallen
Temperature
In moving
Water.

Next time,
You discover
The gift from
Mother nature
Under
Your feet
Before it’s
Forever gone

Frozen beauty
Captivated me
Wishing a
Microscope
Near me
Not to see
Life or
Death, but
Patters and
Designs
Created by
temperature
Water
And time

From
My eyes
To my feet
An inconspicuous
Frozen world existed
unbeknownst to me.
°
When
Sunlight
Illuminated
My slippery path
An intangible Voice
cried-out, “Photograph me.”

After
Editing light
Contrast and color,
My heart skip a beat,
Slowly, hidden Galaxies
Revealed themselves to me.

My Prolific Moments With Nature

 

Nature is prolific, take time to observe, listen and learn.

VASTNESS
One must cross the immensity ocean of uncertainty, before they climb the summits in their lives.

MISCONSEPTION️
Sometimes the mounts right before us are piles made from clearing a way to move forward. Let’s not treat them as barriers.

20180418_173827.jpg

DISTRACTIONS
Before distractions bloom, we should take a good look at what’s before us. Let’s not overlook the fact that, we just might be able to move right or left to avoid the distraction all together. Yes, it could be that simple.

RESTORING HOPE
Day’s duty flees aspiration. Sunset diminishes failure. Moments reflect past lessons. Faith restores tomorrow’s hope. Night gives a soul much-needed restoration.

SOUL THIEF
A chilling wind called my name as it gently swayed the golden grass.

My soul drifted to the grassy side while my body stood on an icy road.

In no time, my body joined my soul and I whispered, “Alaska, why do you try to steal my soul? I’m already yours.”

Why? I Don’t Know

I’m not sure why tree trunks have captivated me recently.

Maybe, because of their glistening colors at sunset.

Or maybe, they impress me on how they endured the harsh winter weather.

What they needed to lose, their outer skin, and weak branches, were for them to be able to expand and grow.

IMG_20180327_144721_732.jpg
Besides the fallen branches were not strong enough to endure the snow, ice and winds.

Hum . . . maybe that’s why I experience losses this past season of life.

I need to let go and grow.

IMG_20180327_144721_734.jpg

Well, I’m ready to expand my horizon and shine with a smile when the sunsets come.

With God’s help, I will carry on.

Where I Feel Total Freedom

Alaska, I’ve fallen in love with your splendor and the souls who call you home.

And to think, I’ve never wanted to set foot on your land.

Oh, how naive I was about you.

Only God knew, you and those who i met would be good for me.

20180321_011850.jpg

The first time my eyes set sight on Alaska’s mountains my soul grew wings and an invisible part of me reveal herself to me as she became free.

While I’m out among Alaska’s nature, I exist, I truly exist. It’s as if I’ve been submerged in water most of my life, holding my breath and only allowed to surface one or twice a month. But here, I can breathe normal all the time. Like, I belong here. No longer do I come out to take a quick breath and go back inside of myself. I can stay out and live like I was created to live.

Now, every time I fly into Anchorage, I feel as if I’m coming home. Yet, I’ve never lived anywhere in the state of Alaska.

My heart, my soul and my mind are in perfect harmony when I’m here. If only, I could stay, I would finally not only see the whole me, but be totally free.

Every time the plane descends for a landing, I get trigger happy and the collection of photos begin. Then I become exuberant, for I know what awaits me once I’m out of the plane and in nature, FREEDOM!!!

When Evening Comes

20180120_162411.jpg

When evening enters
A majestic view
Not one sound it makes
While the scene becomes blue

Colors become darker
And the air much colder
Reminding night approaches
Behind one’s shoulder

The coat is zipped
and a sigh is released
For the tranquil blue
whispers, it’s time to leave
