Glorious

In my opinion, nature is beautiful.  Yes, I know that it is at times “red in tooth and claw”.  But it is also beautiful – breathtakingly so.

No big commentary today, but I just loved the way this picture turned out.  Click on it a couple of times to “blow it up” to larger size and enjoy it.  I have.  This is better stuff than any human can create.  All we can do is stand back and suck in our breath in awe and delight.

Enjoy…and have a great weekend!!

I love this image!

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY: in 1918 the armistice between the Allies and Germany was signed, ending WWI.

TRIVIA FOR TODAY: the largest man-made geyser in the world is located opposite the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.  It reaches heights of 600 feet utilizing 800 hp pumps that discharge water at 200 feet per second.  The geyser can keep 1,100 gallons of water (weighing 9200 pounds) in the air at one time.
