1 Shot Wednesday

Big Lake/Three Forks

Late May, 2016. It was brisk and sunny when we explored the White Mountains in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest on the eastern side of Arizona. Jim and I rented a cabin next to a lodge in the village of Alpine. Up we aimed to mountain lakes to fish and kayak. While there was no precipice to remind us how high up we were, wandering on the windy mountain top with the expansive sky pressing down on my shoulders had me feeling free as a bird.

  3. Beautiful photos Cindy. I stayed one night in Flagstaff…had some wine with dinner. Woke up with a headache, but no hangover…oh that’s right I was at 7,000 feet!

    1. Hi John, thanks for commenting. This spot is located about two hours east of Payson. A bit higher than Flag, but you get it. The altitude does strange things to your body. Expecially after wine. πŸ˜‰

  6. Beautiful pictures Cindy πŸ™‚ Just out of curiosity, were you ever interested in painting growing up? πŸ™‚ The reason I ask is because all of these landscapes remind me of live-action paintings for lack of better word πŸ™‚ Anyway, keep up the great work as always πŸ™‚

    1. John, how insightful you are! Yes, I always wanted to be a painter. When I take a picture, they are often what I see if I could paint. πŸ˜‰

    1. Danke! I should try taking pictures of “ugly” things. I think that’s the sign of a true artist–maybe I’ll try that and make a post and see what you think then!
