If You Can't Say Something Nice

If I were to begin these lines with my pencil, it would last for about two and a half seconds, and then turn thick and jagged. And then the eraser would smear them into a wrinkled hole, just before I rip the crumpled remains with a red rage.
The violin stories will stay in my head. Meanwhile, enjoy the scenery.
I somehow managed to botch the last photo while simultaneously rendering my blog un-editable.

Lovely scenery! Thanks, Emily, and have a great weekend.
The third one reminds me of flying over the Rockies.
Emily, I'll ask Robert to help!
Albert, we had a lot of ice fog yesterday, so it looks really high, but I'm only between 2000-3000 feet, elevation. In the right corner of that photo, you can see Mount Iliamna, an active volcano. Soldotna is on the plain between here and there, at the edge of the fog.
Does anyone else see the witch in the negative space in photo two? She even has a wart on her nose.

Beautiful photos, Emily, thanks for sharing! And yes, I do see the witch, though I wouldn't have if you hadn't mentioned it. :)

I see a wolf facing left, ears pointing up and all.
I 'd have to walk down into the fog in the last photo.
It was nice, starting the hike in a cloak of fog, emerging into the angled sunlight, then setting with the sun, back down into the fog.
Your amazing photos make me feel like I am in your head looking through your eyes! You have such a sense of beautiful!
Wow... maybe too much red wine after dinner.... ;-)
Anybody in this bar hits on my woman is gonna get a knuckle sandwich!
Wow...maybe too much Maker's and coke
Hmm, think I'll have a glass of wine myself.
Thanks!!! What a wonderful world!!! Eine Alpensymphonie, R. Strauss or... Johann Sebastian Bach...
Emmanuele, you're right -- Bach. Your photos are beautiful, Emily. Thanks for posting them. I've never seen anything that looks like the natural wonders of your part of the world. The scenery is completely unfamiliar, but very beautiful. That was some hike you took.
Thank you for sharing the visual of what we try to produce with sound.
