Your Moment


~Slow Down~
and reflect
on how

~Each Moment~
moves quickly.

If you stop and capture that moment,
then 
it 
will always 
be

  ~Yours~




For one of my Not-So-Proud moments...
go here:

A feather on the wind can say so much without saying a word.

mountain mama said...

sometimes i wish i could hit a "pause" button in life. just to make a special moment last a bit longer...to savor and relish every single thing about it.
or, maybe i should just takes more pictures! :)

Janie said...

What a great expression of an important concept. WE all coupld benefit from slowing down and capturing those moments. Love the feather photo.

Buttons said...

Oh Dawn you always make me think and I really appreciate that. I love the way you make everything seem fixable.
Times are tough for a lot of folks right now and you inspire them. B

Lovely catch, you haven't said if you are using your new camera exclusively.I just passed 8000 pics last week on one I broke in at the end of October last year.

sage said...

Beautiful--love the reflection (and how on water it almost looked like sky). Good advice, too!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Great captures, Dawn. Love the idea of holding onto moments... time does pass so quickly. :)

Gail said...

Fantastic!

Farmchick said...

slowing down is some excellent advice

rosaria said...

Perfect!

Mike said...

Beautiful pics and great advice. Funny story about the mouse :-). Did you catch it yet?

From Beyond My Kitchen Window said...

I can't believe you actually captured the feather falling like that. I guess your new camera is working like a charm. Lovely!!!

Zuly said...

Dawn thank you very much for your birthday greeting.
I really like your blog and I admire sportsmen.
Your photos are expectaculares.
If one day come to Costa Rica you loves landscapes.
In my country we have many mountains, volcanoes and beautiful beaches.
I send you a big hug,
Zuly Castillo U.

awesome photos.....

Slamdunk said...

Amen Dawn. Powerful message and I love how the photo emphasizes the point. Seize the day indeed.

Randy said...

I needed a good laugh. Poor mouse must have been scared to death. You post is lovely.

wayne15575 said...

I just about wet my pants laughing so hard at the " mouse mobile...hahahaha. Thanks so much for sharing. I needed that. Wayne

Rick said...

What a stunning shot, Dawn. I think we live too much of our lives unconsciously - thanks for the reminder.

Lynette said...

Lovely Dawn!

Pearl said...

I should print this out, stick it to the fridge because you're absolutely right...

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Beautiful! So beautiful! Just perfection. Again!

Melissa Jo said...

I love this! You really do have a talent in matching your words to the photos so well.

darlin said...

Dawn your first photo is a stunning capture. I couldn't agree more that we take so much for granted in life, until we experience either going without or experience something life-altering... then we find the gratitude for the things we once took for granted. Things such as taking a shower, using the washroom, tying up your shoes, taking a breath without an oxygen mask attached and hoses coming out of every orifice in the human body. Yup, it's an amazing day to be alive, thank you for the reminder!

I sure got a good laugh out of the mouse story, now that was funny! I was trying to figure out how come I've never put two and two together and figured out that Flora is your Mom. I sure wouldn't make a good detective when something is right in front of my nose! lol I've been following her blog for quite some time now but I've never made the connection.

Have a great day!

Saz said...

Wow! What a lovely photo. So simple, yet so exquisite! I absolutely love it. (:

Country Mouse Studio said...

that was great I don't know why mice are so scary :O)

heyBJK said...

What beautiful shots, Dawn! Fantastic! Your photos are always enjoyable to look at.

ladyfi said...

Such dreamy shots - very serene!

Alan said...

Haha, bet there was nothing slow about your reaction to that mouse in your car. Shouldn't that read "Slow Down and reflect on how that rodent moves quickly. If you don't stop and capture that mouse, then it will always covet your trouser leg":-)

Debbie said...

dawn...i did not know that flora was your mom....but i read her post & saw "the sneakers" and i knew...it had to be you!!

the feather is beautiful, the blue's so blue!!
