Framing the View

Having been sick for almost a week, I have not even had my camera out of the bag, let alone been out taking photos.  As a result, I haven’t been too inspired about my blog.  Last night I started going through some of my recent photos to see what I could come up with for today, and I realized that there were still some interesting ones to show you from when we were out capturing the Fall colours.  On this particular day, a spur of the moment decision resulted in us ending up at the top of a ski hill, from which the view was breathtaking.

After capturing the view itself, Mike and I stood at the top of the ski hill and started taking pictures of the chair lift structure.  It was so strange to see a snowless ski hill and all of that motionless equipment.  I don’t ski, but it was kind of sad looking in a way.  At one point, I looked through one of the chairs and noticed how it sort of framed the scene below.  It’s not a frame provided by Mother Nature, but it is a frame all the same.

  1. I like to think of the chair as “in-waiting” and not sad, and its does frame a lovely countryside

    • That was way, way better than any medicine I could buy at the store. Thank you so much Suzanne – you brought a huge smile to my face as I was walking to the bank today (walking and checking emails isn’t dangerous is it?). People driving by must now think I’m either a really happy person or just plain crazy LOL!! Thanks for making my day. I am feeling much, much better now :).

    Nice shot. I hope you are feeling better.

    • Phew!! I am feeling much better, and it’s a good thing because tonight is that author reading (Deborah Harkness) that I told you about in Toronto, and we’re making it a girls’ night out with dinner beforehand. I even have my books ready to take with me to be signed. Cross your fingers for me!!

  8. Glad you’re feeling better!
