nature is an infinite sphere

** featuring photography by mary p.**

"Nature is an infinite sphere of which the center is everywhere and the circumference nowhere." ~Blaise Pascal~

i had to share these beautiful photographs taken by my lovely and talented friend Mary P. they were taken recently from a road trip to the Grand Canyon. it's (cute) amazing how her eyes light up at the thought of going there or when she is reliving her trip. she loves visiting this place! she promises to take me one day and i can't wait!!
until then, i will live vicariously through her photographs.

for more beauty, visit her flickr site!

Lorena: I took a chartered flight over the Grand Canyon years ago, but was so sick a friend grabbed the camera and took photos for me. Glad you were on the ground. Awesome!

Great shots, very enjoyable. The closet I've come to the Grand Canyon is in an airplane on a flight to Phoenix. Hopefully that changes soon, I would love so see it for myself.

Thanks for sharing... as usual!

I love that first quote and picture. Makes me think there is always something at the edge of my vision that I've missed.

Danny Sillada said...

These are great, fantastic images that I dream to visit.

Lavinia said...

These are so incredible! They give a sense of hugeness (is that a word?) and yet still show such detail.

Thats really something special.

Nature wins again! I'd like to visit this breath-taking place (but keep breathing). I went to a canyon in Drumheller, Alberta where they sold petrified dinosaur dung that had presumeably been excavated from the various layers of rock. The grand canyon also reminds me of Wiley Cayote because he was always falling off cliffs. Don't get too close to the edge!

Free Spirit said...

Good pics. In the end, nature always wins.

Benjamin said...

They capture some mythic quality of the Canyon. Fine pictures. Hope you're having fun, Lo x

Alina said...

golfedombre said...

Devil Mood said...

If only every architect was like Frank Lloyd Wright...we'd all live in nice greenhouses ;)

Dear Lady Lorena,

I have long admired you from afar. Thy photos here are goodly and tempestuous

Still more tempestuous, a vast pageantry of romance among several blogs is currently underway and will reach its climax late Monday or Tuesday morning.

Ladies and Gentlemen of good breeding, Vixens, and Tarts, are equally invited to attend.

A summary of events is provided on my most recent post.

Warmest regards,
