Vigil Strange I Kept On The Field

The base I live on is rather small and not largely populated, but still it can be hard to find a quiet spot free of troops drilling, or people fishing and walking their dogs; I'm even leery of the occasional hunter. So, it was nice to discover this field without fences where no one else seems to go that I can wander in quiet privacy. It's wonderful to be alone in nature as the sun is setting--just to watch the light shift and see birds wing across a golden turning pink sky. Soon cooler weather will drive most casual visitors and noisy birds away. Last year I felt as if the beach near my house belonged to me, as I was the only one who claimed possession of it when it was twenty degrees and the wind was whipping hard against your face. No other footsteps followed mine when I cut a path across it in the snow on a bright December day. Soon, I hope to claim small corners of this base as well--places where no one else will venture once the temperatures drop, but still hold beauty to me.

these photos are quite striking. they have an ethereal quality and sort of a quiet loneliness to them. haunting, I suppose. the second one especially. it gives me chills. makes me want to go on an adventure (and then return from it for hot coco in front of a fire). Only I don't have a fire...so coco will have to do!

ps. love the sweater!

Your life sounds wonderful. Do you even have a job? Even if you do, it seems like you just walk around in beautiful places and take pictures.

I totally understand that sense of ownership that comes with beautiful and secluded spots in nature... It's so lovely to see your special spots as well as your outfits! :)

PS the short hair is INCREDIBLE.

I love this outfit with your new hair cut! just the right amount of girlie crossed with tomyboy - no easy task. That bag is also making me rethink my attitude towards backpacks. It's great!

PS: I love solitude in nature - I can totally relate to wanting your beach back!
