Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Badlands Moon~












Did you know that there are the Badlands in South Dakota, as well as the Badlands of North Dakota?  I never knew this until last week.  They rest in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and that is where these two images were taken as the moon was finally setting in the west~

  3. This answers the burning question, "how high the moon". It has such a wonderful translucence in these shots.
