October Photo Challenge - Day 23 - The View From Here


Today's prompt...well, it's a lot of the reason why we moved here...the views from here, God glorifying, amazingly, breathtaking!!  Not every view every day....but a lot of the time...and if you've been reading my blog at all for the last two and a half years, you've seen many of those views!


But one I haven't really shown you very often, is today's choice photo.




 .
That is the view from my kitchen window.  It's what I gaze upon as I do the dishes and prepare our meals.  I love it!! We actually, shortly after moving in, rearranged the kitchen cupboards so that the sink could sit smack-dab in front of this window.


 
 
.
I haven't often photographed this shot because...well, the window here is actually cracked.... and usually pretty dirty...but hubby was kind enough to open it for me (because I can't quite reach it!) so I could capture this view on 'film'.
 
 
And as I was going through my photos I found a few more gems to show you...just a few pictures of some views I captured recently, ones I don't always or often share from their respective angles.
 
 
Like our front door.  One early morning, as we were loading the kids in the van to take them to school, I looked back and saw the sun lighting up the front of the house.  I love coming home to this place and though we haven't put much work into the outside, I find our little porch welcoming and inviting.
 

 



.
And here, the next shot....well, you've seen this view featured here.. a LOT!!  It's of the valley behind the house.  Usually I go outside and snap my pictures from the side of the house.  But it's the view, directly behind the house, that can only be seen through two windows, one of which I positioned (selfish me!) my drafting table in front of, that I love so dearly!  (the second window is in the bathroom - see yesterday's post for that window...though you can't see out it in that shot...but from the...uh throne....it's an amazing view!!!!)




.
I love this valley view.  I love to sit here and just marvel at the beauty that is out there....marvel at God's amazing artistry...as I try to muster up my own creative juices!




 
 .
And finally, a sunset.  Because I haven't shown you nearly enough of these, now have I?!?! ;) hahah!! They never cease to amaze me!!  I want to paint one but I can't settle on which picture to use....and if I wanted to paint from life...well I'd just end up sitter there watching it unfold in front of me...and never put paint to canvas! hahah!
 
 




.

And so...those are some of the views from here...some of my favourites, that's for sure!! I find that the camera doesn't quite capture God's handy work...but I try!!  I feel immensely blessed to be able to enjoy these sights...but I must remember, this earth is temporary...and heaven...well, the views from there....wow!

















Tomorrow - Day 24 - DINNERTIME

    1. I know, fall is AMAZING!!! God was so kind to bless us here (as in places it snows) with the beauty of Autumn, right before the bleakness of winter!! I mean there are some pretty days in the winter time...but not many...and it's usually to cold to go photograph them! ;)

      Hahaha, extra credit...only when it comes to things I enjoy!! Like Art class - those marks made up for the ones lacking in Math! LOL!!!
