  1. It took me quite some time to find you here; I tried all the blogs on your Blogger Profile first.

    The journey was interesting!

    One haiku covering many prompts, just as well it is such a good one.

  2. i cannot tear myself away.
    your haiku paired with southwest landscapes
    takes me into the blue vault skies of places already
    etched permanently in my heart.
    returning here….to you,
    jOy in the house of belonging.

  3. I wish we could change places for a time. I need to feel the expansiveness of this desert. You can come to the arches of Jerusalem.

  4. I am a huge fan of trees and that one paired with the landscape and shadows is stunning .. the haiku is perfect!

  5. a lovely tranquil shot – I love such sites in Mexico…

  6. Where do you take all these desert shots? I found out that this one was from Mexico but are all your photos from Mexico?
    I love them!!

  7. The clouds arrive in many a shape, an infinite number of imaginative possibilities to our eyes. A clown or trapeze artist? I’ll bet there is such a cloud above…we keep our eyes affixed steadily to these lovely fair-weather clouds!

  8. Wonderful imaging here, MMT. I can easialy visualize your dancing elders just off the camera’s view. 🙂
    The hills there around Jalisco are very similar to those in our Texas Hill Country.

  9. Terrific shadow shot! And what a beautiful scene/place! And, yes, it is easy to imagine the dancing elders! Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!


  10. I like the way it looks as if the tree is leaning to the left to let us see the hills in the background.

  11. I like the idea of a carnival of clouds and chanting shadows. I’m dancing along with the elders. 😉


  12. Beautiful shadow shot.

    Soft shade of shadows at Nostalgic Marvelingplease come and see. Have a great weekend!

  13. Great view and shadows!

    Happy weekend!

  14. You make the desert seem very appealing.

  15. Beautiful photo and words. I love the way the single tree stands on the step like ground in front of the mountains.

  16. great foreshadow…but i love the tree in the background the most.

  17. Your always alert of those beautiful things you see around.

    I always love and envied how you captured such great shots.

    Anyhow, you always rocks, Maam, while am silence for so long. Hope to see again.

    Have a blessed SSS…
