SWF: Lagoon Valley

View skies around the world at Sky Watch Friday.

~~~
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings
Nature's peace will flow into you
As sunshine flows into trees
The winds will blow their own freshness into you
While cares will drop off like autumn leaves
- John Muir

Breathless, we flung us on a windy hill
Laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass
- Rupert Brooke

Wonderful shots. Love the mountains and how the clouds seem to be sitting on top. The quotes really go well with the photos.

A place to run and skip and play,
not knowing how to express the beauty of the day.
