Purple Mountains Majesty
I always thought that line was poetic, but not all that real ... purple mountains majesty. As a child it stuck in my mind and gave me more of a dreamy, eloquent imagination. But I was going through my photos tonight. Purple mountains! This one was from a trip to Anaheim last year. Those colors really are there! Sometimes I'm amazed to see what colors are present in the light. They're not always evident at first, but those subtle shades can spring out and surprise me sometimes. Sometimes monochromatic, sometimes like a rainbow. Light is somewhat magical. It's one of those things that makes my mind go "TILT" when I stop to think about it ... all those colors just waiting in something supposedly without color? WOW.
