GENTLE BEAUTY

I would like to give you a gift. A gift of beauty.

I'm not sure why, but I seem to have noticed and enjoyed this autumn and its gentle beauty more this year than in recent years. Maybe it was because the weather was more conducive to being out and around our property. This fall is proving to be fairly rough for me on several levels, and I searched for and found solace in nature's wonders.Whatever the reason, I took a plethora of photos that portrayed the beauty that surrounds us. Perhaps, at times, we are so blinded by what is going on in our lives and our world that we miss a lot of the really good stuff.

And now I'd like to share six layouts of my autumn photos that I created in MDS. I hope that by sharing them with you, you too will experience the grace and gentle beauty of this season.







These photos are for your viewing pleasure only. Please respect my ownership of my images and enjoy them solely on my blog post. 

Grateful
Smiles.

  6. Lovely photos Linda. And I hope you are having a much brighter and easier time. I know that life is always full of ups and downs, but the gift that God gives us freely of the beauty we see is always a big uplift. Blessings to you...
