the hills are alive

12.11.2014

my photography.

We weren't really supposed to be here.
The sun was about to set.
The last of the visitors had trailed out hours ago.
Feeble rays of light lit our path, and the dirt glowed golden.

It was only then that I let myself lean over the cast-iron railing.
Wow. The word came to my lips at once-- juvenile, unpoetic-- but it was there, and it wasn't going away.
I'm not sure for how long I stood there, but the intense beauty entranced me.

Time slipped by as I gazed, mesmerized, at the postcard below.

And I could almost hear strains of music coming from the hills in the distance.
Almost.

  16. I know this is from last year, but it was too splendid to not comment. This is so touching that words can't even begin to describe how good I felt inside reading this! I am browsing through multiple bloggers' older posts because it is late at night here and I am not tired, and this one truly does stand out. AMAZING job, Arushee! Kudos to you!
