Spectacular! I love all of these photos! 😍 Great details and use of light. Love the owls, too.
I’m just smitten by these two words
Lavender and Mist
So upon seeing them materialise on a canvas, photo, as wool, thread or fabric
Misty in Song
Then I fall in love.
Stunning long legs in the mist.
Are you familiar with Jackson Pollock’s “Lavender Mist”? https://www.nga.gov/collection/highlights/pollock-number-1-1950-lavender-mist.html. The painting is mesmerizing in person. Similar to how you describe the two words.
No im not, but i will most definitely read the link and search out his paintings. Thank you so much for sharing Timothy.🙂
These are beautiful, love the lavender mist, the Owls are awesome!
Thanks, Holly. I got out at dawn this morning. It was magical.
You’re so energetic! Bottle that. I wanted to get up at 4:30 am to see the full moon but …no 😊
Do you go to bed at 9 or 9:30?
Lol, unfortunately no, I’m a night owl 🦉
That makes it hard to get up at 4:30 am unless you stay up until 4:30 am.
I was up at 4:30 today as you can tell yet I neglected to take a look at the moon. Time keeps on slipping into the future and me with out a photograph of tonight’s full moon.
Fortunately for the future, the moon is only unavailable one day a month, but it gives us over 90% fullness for almost a week each month. While the moon is disappointed it didn’t get to see your pretty face in the wee hours of the morning, it is anticipating seeing you on another day.
You are so awesome! I am inspired to catch that moon in the very near future. 😊🌝
Good to see Mr. and Mrs. Owl together again in the same image. And the cranes continue to grace your river. Calm and pretty, or in these shots pretty calm.
Thanks, Maj & Sher. The cranes are calm. The a fluffed up, some were still sleeping others stretching and morning preening. Once the sun peeked over the mountains, some of them started flying off. Mama Owl will start sitting soon.
Photos are especially beautiful today, Tim. Thanks for sharing them with us.
You are welcome, Juanita. Thanks for dropping by.
Lavender shot is amazingness, sunrise gorgeous. Always such beautiful photos, Tim.
You’re most welcome, Tim.
love the lavender color Tim. love the strobe of lights at the bottom too! and the cute owls always. 💖
The lights are from the sun reflecting off the frost on the plant. Thanks, Cindy.
wow that was so cool! 🌈
I was going to ask how you you captured the light effects on the last photo, and saw your answer above. All the photos are awesome, Tim…love the lavender.
The lights were really pretty in person. They didn’t really reproduce the same as I saw them, but it came out interesting all the same. Thanks, KT.
My pleasure, Tim.
WOW!! So stunning.
Lovely, lovely pics. Feast for the eye. Just showed a friend who is here for the weekend.
Thanks, Shey. I hope your friend enjoyed the photos?
She did. She thought they were lovely. You need have no worries on that score.
I’m happy to hear that.
We’ve been friends since we were 13.
That’s a little while. I have one friend who there’s never been a time we can remember we didn’t know each other. We were born four days apart in the same hospital and our parents had us playing together not long after we were born.
I have a friend like that. We lived round the corner from each other till we were about 13–I even have 1st birthday cards from her and her family, then eventually we lost touch but at a best friend and her husband’s funeral a few years ago, this woman came up to me and asked if I was so and so. Her now hubby and my friend’s bros had played in a band way way back before he emigrated to Canada. And right enough my friend often talked of this guy and his wife cos he still has a band that goes down every other weekend to play the Cavern in Liverpool–once even played with Paul McCartney when he got up on stage there one time, just as this best friend must have talked to this woman about me. Anyway throughout the service I am trying and trying to place this woman cos i knew her and she thought we must have met at family things but like that my best friend only ever extended that circle to us and she didn’t have many things like that. Anyway turned out that this was this girl from all the years back. It was like my best friend sent ther back to me.
That’s a sweet story. My friend and I have never lost touch, however, after he married a witch of a woman, we don’t get together much at all. We call and text every now and then.
Well that girl moved to another bit of the area we grew up in and she was also in a different class and year from me at school the way the cut off point fell for that year. That was the time when schools boasted like 4 classes in the same year, all with like 40 kids in them so there wa s amid year intake in Feb and she was behind me in August. It was just great to be in touch again and to meet. I ahve another friend I don’t see often . I think I saw more of her when we lived across the river. Now I live about five mins away on foot! Anyway I am have known her since we were 6 and she came to my school. I ain’t big on friends. I prefer a few you click with or don’t see but can meet again and have a great time with as opposed to like tons that you can’t really keep up with. I am anti social actuallY!!
I hear you on friends. I have very few friends I see in person. There are the ditch bank buddies who we visit for 5 minutes as we cross paths walking on the ditch banks and in the bosque. Otherwise, I have more blogger friends than in-person friends.
Yeah.. I have always been a bit of a loner. The friends here at the weekend? Well they live in Edinburgh. And my friend who died, that went to when we moved across the river –god the nights we used to ahve getting trolleyed on wine. But they had also moved away to help with grandchildren. Totally get it re online friends etc. We got asked to the wedding of this woman here who is a reader actually who I had only met once when we did the Mr’s play and she came to see it. But like that we talk so much behind the scenes and she was quite frank about how all her actual non virtual friends dropped her when she ran off with this guy out the blue but hey, I hadn’t, so would we come? And you know we have since got to know her and her man quite well and had some great evenings out with them. .
That’s great. Funny how things turn out. Did her non-virtual friends not like the guy? Doesn’t make much sense, but nothing makes much sense in the social spheres I have no clue about. I’m a social Neanderthal and don’t know a thing about the delicacies and decorums of non-virtual social intercourse.
She had been in this very unhappy relationship…long term..try 30 years. Obvi it was not that way to start with and she’s loyal, spent her time looking after her mam , has brought up a grandchild basically who as AHD. She is a lovely woman, never a thought of herself. And truly I used to wish for some happiness and fulfillment in her life, cos of all she was carrying. Then she did meet– randomly– this guy and he’s great. But the friend’s thought she was off her trolley.
Sounds like she waited too long to find a new man. But that seems to be the nature of bad relationships. Good for her finally coming to her senses.
She’s really happy now which is lovely.
That’s a that matters.
Sometimes I wonder whether I’m stepping in a fairy tale whenever I land here… I probably am, right?!
Once upon a time… It’s pretty much a fairy tale. It has to be worth our whiles. Thanks, Marina.
Wonderful pictures of those mists!
Thanks, Yellow Cable.
Love love the lavender and mist. 💜 Thank you for sharing this beautiful collection, Tim.
You are welcome. Patty. Thanks for stopping by.
The birds and Sandias look beautiful in early morning lavender, and also in the crisp light of a new day. When does Mama Owl start laying eggs?
Mama should start sitting this week or next. Thanks, Lavinia.
Lovely and beautiful, Tim! Incidentally, I have been playing with a lavender hue in the studio this morning!💜
It’s a lavender world we live in. Thanks, Tiffany.
Lavender mist, owls and Jackson Pollock in sparkly dots! Wonderful collection!
You caught the sparkly dots connection with Jackson Pollock. You are beautiful and observant. A perfect combination. Thanks, Dale.
Awww shucks! Now you’ve got me blushing!
Thank you, Tim.
Lavender Mist – a perfect photo collection to meditate with aroma therapy.
Lavender mist would be a nice aroma therapy. Thanks, Rebecca.
This is a great collection of photos. I especially love that last one with the close-up of the water droplets on the branches. They almost look like crystals adorning the branches. Really beautiful
Are you familiar with Pollock’s painting “Lavender Mist” the last photo has similar vibes. Thanks, JYP.
I am not. I’ll have to check it out
It’s an amazing painting. We studied it in art history, and I saw it the National gallery in D.C.
Stunning shots, Tim!
The last one is particularly pretty.
So great to see Mama & Papa, together!
Thanks, Resa. The last photo looks like Pollack’s Lavender Mist: https://aphelis.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/POLLOCK_1950_Lavender_Mist.jpg. Dale noticed.
The painting looks very cool, but your pic is sweeter.
The painting is spectacular in person. Very large a wild.
I’d like to see some of his work in person.
A pic of a painting is nothing like the real thing!
We studied all different paintings in art history. Classes were always scheduled at 2:00 pm, in a dark room, watching slide after slide of masters’ paintings. Not only was it hard to stay awake, but all the paintings were the same size in the slides. When we saw many of the original paintings we studied at the U while we were in Spain, many were surprising by their actual sizes. Some were huge while others were tiny.
I became mesmerized by “Horse and Train” (Alex Coleville) at an art show many years ago in Vancouver.
They actually sort of woke me up, as I stood in front of the painting. Time to go, the gallery is closing.
There are slews of photos of the painting, but meh.
You have to see it in person!
Bootiful captures, Tim.
Lavender really compliment those sandhill featherings – gives it a very calming feel. You are getting me all excited to see this year’s owlets!
The go well together. Mama owl should start sitting soon. Thanks, Brian.
Just lovely … beautiful sparkles in that last shot!
