Unanswered Prayers...

"Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers."

When I drove through Bishop and the Sherwin grade during the beautiful fall color, I wondered what the trees would look like when all their wonderful leaves fell...
Little did I know that in the absence of color there would be such grace...

A little side's my sister's birthday today!!!  
Happy Birhday Annie!!!


  1. Happy birthday to your sis! And what a glorious tree!

  2. Thank you LadyFi!!! I've been entranced by these trees ever since they lost their leaves..finally took my camera along with me and spent some time "shooting"!!!

  3. Stunning photo with the blue sky punching through the neutrals... That tree is an all-season winner!

    Happy B-day to Annie, too...


  4. beautiful photo! with a clear day, the trees do stand out so beautifully!

    and Garth's song is amazing in all the variations of what we see.

  5. This is one of my favourits among your pics, really great!

  6. Thank you Genie! The drive from Bishop to Mammoth takes about 40 minutes, and every time I drive it, I am mesmerized by what I see around me....from these trees to the fields with cows and horses to the magnificent mountains that change with the sun...truly God's country!!!

    Thank you Trish!!! The light was at almost twilight...and the sun on the greyed branches against the blue sky shouted out to me!!! "Take me! Take me!"

  7. this is absolutely beautiful, such a wonderful contrast against the sky

  8. Thank you Justine!!! I loved your recent post of the white on white Gerber daisy!!!
