Photo from the monastery

sheep

If you look carefully at this photo, you can see just the tiniest bit of blue sky, like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle taken from another landscape.

Sometimes just a tiny bit of blue sky is all we get.

I know you've said that you're camera is a Kodak point and shoot, but man, the sharpness and colors are just amazing. Look at this picture! It's like those HD photography pictures that I like on Flickr (e.g. SkyShaper). I kind of want to buy one, even though what I really want is a Canon Digital Rebel.

Wow. That's so beautiful.

Your monking pictures are always so incredibly beautiful.

And if we're just a little bit lucky and willing to work at it, just a tiny bit of blue sky is enough.

Thanks. So different from the desert landscape where I live.

Sue said...

Thank you for sharing your lovely pictures with us. Happy Monking!

I always love your monastery descriptions. And the pictures knock me out.

maybe we don't need blue sky all the time. maybe we do need the landscape, and the nurturing clouds, and the other creatures who are so lovely.

Thanks for these, Jo(e). You probably already said somewhere, but what monastic order is this monastery? They sound very Benedictine.

jo(e) said...

Poor Mad Peter: Yes, it's a Benedictine monastery.

That little piece of blue sky, looks like a whale. If you look just right and imagine a light blue whale swimming in dark waters, oh yeah, love the pictures.

Looks like a smile from Heaven.

Your photos are always so beautiful.

On a side note, I just finished reading The Mermaid Chair and now I'm even more fasinated by your monastary. :)

I was driving home from work and saw a bit of blue peaking through the clouds that didn't match the rest of of the blue sky...just a little patch like your picture! I always think when I see this that it's where heaven begins or the place we could go to forget all our troubles. Like, go through the the space and land on cloud nine. :-)

comebacknikki: That book has led all kinds of inappropriate jokes at the monastery ....
