Breathing in My Best Shot




Still reveling in the wide open spaces of central California, I wanted to share another photo with you from the other weekend. We took walk after walk through fields of mustard and tall grasses, breathing in the clean cool air of the vastness that surrounded us. Sigh.

I said it was heaven, right?

What little slice of heaven do you have to share this week?

Beautiful. I miss the central coast of California more than anywhere else that I've lived. We live in Monterey for 2 1/2 years. Anyway... Here's mine for the week http://www.flickr.com/photos/divrchk/2407727340/

We are not seeing too much of a blue sky like that around here, so your picture is a breath of fresh air. Thank you for sharing this.

Gorgeous!

I wish I had a slice of heaven to share. Instead, I captured something today that made me really curious to know how much value other moms place on their wedding bands.

How Important is Your Wedding Band?

The simplicity and the colors of this photo are breathtaking.

The blues and greens are so pretty.

I may have a very literal piece of heaven. Even though I didn't know you would bring that up.

We had a brief taste of spring here in the Canadian Rockies over the weekend.
We also spent a lot of time with our friends new Bassett Hound puppies... the combination was downright delicious and reflected in my own Best Shot Monday!

Oh, that is dreamy...We've had nothing but blustery winds all weekend long. Thankfully, the weather forecast's threat of snow never materialized.

Here's BSM.

emily said...

What a lovely photo - it really allows you to feel what the day must have been like.

I don't know that I'll have time to make the rounds to see everyone else's shots today - I may have to check in later in the week, but I did manage to get mine up finally.

Elaine A. said...

That picture is absolutely gorgeous! Love the colors.

My heaven consists of some family members - it's my first time to participate in BSM...
