Natural Beauty - The Best.

Adventure before dementia

As most of you know, by now, I read part of my Bible every morning.  Today I started at the beginning again, and read of Creation.

Planets, stars, sun and moon, sea and land, animals, fish and birds ... and finally humans.

Now, whetever you believe in a literal 7 day creation (as I do) or whether yu believe in evolution, you must admit, we have some amazing and stunning natural beauty around us.  If you read the story in Genesis, you will see the pharse that "God saw that it was good".  You must agree, whether it is a tiny flower, or the starry sky, there are some beautiful sites to see.

I want to also share these 4 pictures that arrived by e-mail this morning.  The Northern Lights ... something I have never seen, but just stunning - I hope you enjoy them

THIS NEXT PICTURE, IS A FIRE RAINBOW - THE RAREST OF ALL NATURALLY OCCURRING ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMENA. 

THE PICTURE WAS CAPTURED THIS WEEK ON THE IDAHO / WASHINGTON BORDER.  THE EVENT  LASTED ABOUT 1 HOUR. 

CLOUDS HAVE TO BE CIRRUS, AT LEAST 20.000 FEET IN THE AIR, WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ICE CRYSTALS AND THE SUN HAS TO HIT THE CLOUDS AT PRECISELY 58 DEGREES.

They are truly stunning aren't they? It really makes me want to see them in person.

They are stunning pics.

When I am here I read The Bible-in-a-year from cover to cover, just book-marking, rather than sticking to the actual days ... as when I am at Mum and dads I use a different scheme.

But getting those pics, plus reading of creation reminded me again how great God is.

These are beautiful!

Nature is, after all, the art of God. :)

Yes it is - and so often we forget how good God is to give us these amazing gifts.

They are so beautiful - and the colours in the fire rainbow are amazing.

There are some stunning sights to see, aren't there?

I've never heard of a fire rainbow before. It's certainly gorgeous. We do have some beautiful sights in the world.
10th-Dec-2008 07:36 pm (UTC)
No, I hadn't heard of it either ... but am so glad I have seen the pic now.

Stunning pics (colors, lights).

It is incredible, isn't it?

Wow these pics are gorgeous! It has always been one of my dreams to be able to see the Northern Lights in person.
10th-Dec-2008 09:05 pm (UTC)
Yes, it has been something I want to see ... and this makes me want to see it even more!
10th-Dec-2008 09:22 pm (UTC)
These are absolutely gorgeous! I can decide which I like best, the fire rainbow is stunning, but so are the lights.

Thank you for sharing them.

They are all beautiful, aren't they ... that's why I had to share.

I think, I do prefer the rainbow, but only just!
11th-Dec-2008 04:33 pm (UTC)
Those are amazing! Thanks for the pics.

I've seen them a couple of times when I was living in Regina. Because we were farther south, we didn't get the myriad of colours. They were only silvery but there was no question what they were. Breathtaking.

Absolutely stunning.

They are stunning - I would love to see them in person ... maybe one day, well, when I marry my millionaire!!

Scotland is a good place to see them, trouble is they are a bit aloof, so you never know if they are going to do a display or not. ... Is that Northern Lights, or Millionaires???

Yes, I suppose most millionaires are "odd"
