I'm grateful for the beauty of the earth...of the skies, the ocean, the mountains, all the way down to a simple flower. One of the purposes of this photoblog is to share the beauty around me that I am able to capture. I live in a beautiful place and I'm thankful for it.
"For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flow'r,
Sun and moon, and stars of light,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise."
