weekend beautifulness

The weekend was filled with warm sunny days, blue skies and lots of outdoor adventures. I didn´t make it to Tolosa´s carnavales, but instead walked up a mountain...  I felt very small... which always puts my life in perspective and gives me the best high. 
Wishing you a great week! 
Now go stand next to something very big. ;)
¡Dos besos!

The wide open space, like on photo one, is also very humbling.
Beautiful blooms too.

cate said...

geez, these are just plain stunning!

one of the things that i love about living in this big city is the reminder that you are just one small part of something big. however, nyc is a different sort of majesty than a mountain and sky....

Ocean Girl said...

Too too too beautiful. Just beyond words except for maybe yummy and I want to grab it.

Mlle Paradis said...

I live on top of a (small) mountain ... I should really look up to it more often from down below:)! I love your image of the white flowers.

Another kiss

aimee said...

stunning as always! now precisely how did you get that helicopter shot? were you standing on a mountain? in another helicopter? parachuting?? you amaze me, jane!

aimee said...

oh! i just read the text and got my answer! your pictures are so beautiful that i got distracted from the words... but still, either you were mighty close to that helicopter or that is one heck of a zoom lens!

Cacahuete_sr said...

Wow! How beautiful!! I love moments like that, where you are surrounded by such gargantuan nature and you feel so small :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hi Jane, Gorgeous photos as always. That last one-- I sure hope the helicopter wasn't as close to you as it looks!
Cheers, jj

Finn said...

usually your pictures seem to come from a whole different world; this time, it feels like home

it's always nice to hear from you jane, all the best
