Today was my lucky day. The fall colors were stunning! I went for a hike with my nordic poles (really it was more like a dawdle-walk, as I got distracted with my camera and the mind-blowing colors) up Mount Washington. (Comox Valley, Vancouver Island)

As usual, I went, with iPhone in hand. I actually intended to do a work-out, work up a sweat, burn a few calories, but instead, it ended up as a beautiful session of nature photography 🙂 with very few calories burned. Ha.

It was one of the most gorgeous fall days that I have ever seen on the mountain, with striking foilage and vibrant colors, and lush vegetation that appeared to have never dried up in summer like it usually does. I’m happy and satisfied. What a gorgeous day for a walk it was, and a what a feast for the eyes. See for yourself :

Look what I found up Mount Washington today. A work of art! Stunning fall colors up the mountain. Grateful that so much beauty surrounds us. Mother Nature creates ART. We simply have to show up, with open eyes and open heart.”

Below, is the third piece in my series of fall colors, discovered today up Mount Washington. This time, with a softer feel, it warms my heart. I’m so grateful for art and nature, and how they work so beautifully together.

I’m filled with gratitude, that I live in such an incredibly beautiful place on this planet, and that I have eyes to see such tremendous beauty, and a heart to feel deeply, and ears that know, that sometimes the best music, is the silence of nature.

In love and in light,

Brenda Johima
