To Touch Souls/ Sky Watch

" See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.”
~ Mother Teresa

Wow, beautiful skies! This orange is excellent! :)
To reach the Olympus was quite a thing. 2000 meters, and at last a nice climbing section. But I love the moment when you are on top, and here they had such a nice Greek flag...

What a lovely quote to go along with your beautiful photograph! Silence is golden. Sometimes noise complicates, muddies or ruins a special visual moment, I think.

It says Saskatchewan harvest sunset to me & brings back heaps of happy memories of sitting in the grain fields with the odd head of wheat still standing.

I'll be in for slapped wrists today with my post.
