Phantasmagoric Morning

I awoke this morning to a gentle mauve and gray sky;
beautiful yet it would not compel me out of a warm,
radiating bed! About 10 minutes later, I turned over to a glowing
orange sky with streaky cloud cover. O.K, O.K, I thought;
I'm UP. So out I went to find these. Top: A dreamy, early
dark orange sky. Middle: My personal favorite; an 'oriental'
painting is framed between the Appalachian trees
shrouded in mist and cloud clover! (Click to enlarge :-))
And Bottom: The first view I had rounding the
bend from my house of what lay ahead. The only word
that came to my head was Phantasmagoric:
an exhibition of optical effects
and illusions;
a constantly shifting
complex succession of things
seen or imagined; or a
scene that constantly changes


  1. O.M.Goodness these are absolutely breath-taking!! One can just fall into them and stay there gazing at all of the mysteries! Totally awesome photos!!

  2. Angie! So very glad that you could fall into them with me!! :-) :-)

  3. The perfect word to accompany such stunning photographs. That is magical, lg! I'm glad you couldn't resist the lure! :)

  4. It's hard to get out of bed this time of year. :) Love that middle photo, too.

  5. Oh, this is so beautiful!! I just love them all, but I think no 2 is my favorite.

    I hope you have a blessed Christmas soon and many hugs from Norway to you:-)


Please do...tell.
