Thursday

We were out riding our bikes after dinner on a recent evening, and came across this field just before sunset.
The light was just so, looking back West toward the Rocky Mountains and the setting sun, and we had to leap off our bikes and take advantage of the moment.
The soft light can be deceptive, and the prickly things and thorns among the flowers took Q aback at first, but she quickly warmed to the occasion.





These moments of gratuitous beauty are elusive and fleeting. As is life, isn't it? Both elusive and fleeting...oh, much too fleeting. All the more reason to take advantage of every glorious moment that comes our way, don't you think?

I couldn't agree more! While at the beach this evening, we soaked up every single moment of nature's beauty. Oh how I love this gorgeous field you 'stumbled' upon!
