Ah, Wilderness were Paradise Enow

Enough with the loaf of bread and the jug of wine. I'm still on my New Year's diet. Instead...

A Nikon Coolpix under the full moon,

An SD card, and a stable tripod,

Clear night sky and cool crisp air,

Ah, Wilderness were Paradise enow.

With thanks to Omar Khayyam and Edward FitzGerald for prompting the words.


  1. Breathtaking! The warm yellow light at your windows draws me inside after soaking up pure moonlight and the majesty it reveals.

  2. I so want to come live with you!

    That’s it! I know why your muse has been on vacation -- how could she think of working when there is so much natural beauty to explore.

    Maybe if you set out a nice warm cup of tea spiked with a bit of rum and cinnamon it would draw her back home for a little while.

  3. So was this 4 in the afternoon? heh heh heh. Beautiful pictures.
