Transcendent – what a fabulous word! It always makes me think of those things that are out of this normal world in their experience. Merriam Webster defines it as:
extending or lying beyond the limits of ordinary experience
I have been blessed to travel to Superior, MT this week and it has been snowing. We are staying at a beautiful lodge along the river. So my commute is absolutely a transcendent experience!! Here are a few photos of the commute from this morning! Enjoy and share your challenge photos by linking back to this post in your own or add your post link in the comments!
We spent a weekend in Beavers Bend park in Oklahoma and though it is winter there were still plenty of interesting subjects for my camera. The river that runs through the park is very low – Hubby estimated at least 6 ft. So while he fished I walked along the exposed river bed edges and found these treasures. Enjoy!

To journey is to travel.This can be a physical travel as one might travel the US or the world. Or it can be a journey of life or spirit. I’ve chosen to go with photos of my travels. Here are just a few from my travels over the last several years that remind me of some of the places I have been.
This photo was taken in San Diego harbor – mind you, this photo is in color, not sepia – during the fires of 2008. I was there and just speechless about the whole situation. People were fleeing the fires, the city was on its way to being overtaken with the fires, and the emotions were ones that I cannot describe.
On a lighter, happier note – this photo is from Beavers Bend, OK. It is the place where we go every year for my husband’s family reunion. This photo was of an early fall morning when the river still had that mist hanging over it and the fall leaves were beautiful!
Ahhhh, Alaska! The first memories this brings back is the joy and relaxation of my honeymoon with my hubby! The scenery was breathtaking and the serenity just – well, serene!
Love – (according the MW dictionary) “a strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties.” So here are a few photos that show love in some manner.
This photo is of a colt and his mother.
This photo is of roses found on Memorial Day in the river in Roaring River, MO. It appeared that someone had thrown them in the river. The spider refused to budge from the roses. Perhaps a love scorned?? Or a love remembered??
After looking at my pictures I found that I have a LOT with insects. That made me think that maybe I should have been an entomologist. Ok, well, not really. But perhaps I see a theme coming to FR&A…. Here are some of my early insect photos taken in Roaring River, MO.
On this first one I like the sparkle of the water reflected off to the right in the photo. The small, small flowers with the round shiny bug just have some appeal that I can’t quite name…
The second picture I just love for the red in it – the ladybug so bright and round and the other insect that looks like a black, white and red striped fly- and of course, again, the small white flowers against the beautiful greens. Also, this picture (or a part of it) appears on the cover of my Blurb book Nature’s HD (for sale on Blurb).
