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~

Winter Sunrise Over Crystal Lake~

One place on my blog, it shows this is my 102 nd entry for SkyWatch Friday, but in another one, it shows this is my 100th share...so, I placed this message on both;~


~ My 100 th SkyWatch Friday Entry ~


Thank you for all of the wonderful meme managers that make this come to life for so many!


Happy SkyWatching




An early morning journey out into the cold air to grab up a few things needed at the market and this was what greeted my pleasure one morning two weeks ago...it truly was a magical kind of slow rising of the morning sky over Crystal Lake~



I really liked how the image above came out...almost looks like it could be an oil painting~
