The 3 M's~The Moon, a Mountain, and a Movie

Just three photos for three photo memes, so lets get started.

The moon was gorgeous last night and while I wasn't able to capture the orangish clouds around it, this is my first presentable moon shot ever~today's Sweet Shot.
Then I cannot look at these glorious mountains without thinking about God (or the movie "The Sound of Music) so I am using a panorama from our trip to Sunrise for this week's Scripture and a Snapshot.
I wish I knew how to size things so it would be correct in my blog, but you could click to see it at least slightly bigger.  To be above the cloud line as the sun started to come down~amazing!  And it is all God's handiwork.

Finally, this week's Texture Tuesday is to be a movie theme so:
"Mawidge...Mawidge is what brings us together...today."

This image is desaturated a little and then has Kim Klassen's Aurora added 100% softlight/blurred on face and neck.  Sunflower was not as cooperative as posing for this image as I had hoped, so if you don't see the movie connection I will explain.  She is dressed in her princess clothes and playing with my wedding veil~in other words, "The Princess Bride."

I think it is so awesome that God creates sunrises and sunsets to be so beautiful!

And I LOVE The Princess Bride...I knew it by that quote. :)

That is so lovely. I would love to see her face.I didn't know that movie, but who cares, with such a great image.

Such beautiful thoughts, it does us good to stand in awe of the beauty God has created and to think he loves us . . .

Ah...you did what I kept thinking I should do. A moon shot. I just didn't take the time this week. Fabulous job, tho :) And I could sit and stare at that mountain shot all day. Makes me want to be there. You captured it beautifully. He is an amazing creator! ~ Have a great day.

Awesome photos, Cedar! Congrats on the moon shot! I knew the movie by the quote too, it's one of my hubby's favorites :)

Ashley Sisk said...

Each one of these is so beautiful. Love them.

Dorian Susan said...

Wow Cedar. These are fantastic. I've yet to shoot a moon and get that lovely clarity. I'll keep trying. As for the mountains OMG-stunning and i know why you thought of Sound of Music (one of my all time fave movies). Remember the end when the family is walking across the mountaintops? Your last image is ethereal. Wow.

Kathy said...

Gorgeous shot of the moon..wow. I love the shot angle of your photo for this weeks TT. The Princess Bride is a great movie, one I seem to watch every time it comes on.

Christina Klas said...

These three photos are stunning!! Where was this mountain photo taken? And I completely agree - I was on my way home last night and saw how beautiful the moon was. I told myself I needed to get a photo when I got home... and then completely forgot! I'm glad you captured it though. :)

Ocean Soul said...

the moon is fabulous but the panorama with the verse is awesome!

Rose Petal Hollow said...

Beautiful photos. I love each one. They are all different and special.
