Hoodoos

.

Shadowed sculptures make their stand

Stark and eery

Weathered columns etched from sand

Dry and barren

 .

Rippling pillars mark the land

The Hoodoos at Dutch Creek near Cranbrook, BC

    That’s fanastic. Where is this? (Forgive my ignorance.)

    You have an artist’s eye, a photographer’s lens, and a poet’s soul. But best of all, you have the spirit of God in all you write. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Your pictures are awesome! Did you take them?

    My husband is originally from BC and we’ve done alot of traveling up there. Some of the most beautiful country I’ve ever seen and your pictures are spectacular. You always weave the best words and scriptures into your photos. Thank you!

  5. Carol, thanks for another great selection of photography and the wonderful words to connect them. I ditto Judith … you truly have all of that. Then you present it as a gift, with ribbons and wrappings, waiting for us to open :)

    Majestic words and images, striking! though I had to laugh and say aloud “hoodoos” and “Kootenays”…thanks for the smile:)

  10. Oh, lovely! Both the photos and your poetry. I have only been to BC once, and it was one of the prettiest places I’ve seen in my life!

  11. These pics are great, I like the ‘into the fog’ one especially. Well I am not into writing so much even though I am posting myself on WordPress – it’s more like typing than anything serious, but I do enjoy your Canadian Landscape pics, and reading your posts. Keep em coming!

    • Thanks for dropping in. I’m glad you’re enjoying the photos and I hope you’ll return for more visits, even if you don’t consider yourself a writer. I post on various topics although, admittedly, writing is a major focus.
