Life on these slopes - Part II

Life on these slopes - Part II

Sunrise on a misty morning. Lembang, Indonesia.
September 2013.

It was interesting to see families and communities living on these slopes. I have disabled comments for "Life on these slopes - Part I" because it is a close up of a section of the larger area and scene captured in "Life on these slopes - Part II". Part II was shot at sunrise and Part I was shot approximately 15 minutes after the sun had risen.

With each sunrise, and especially at the dawn of a new year, I look back and am grateful for all the hits and misses of 2013, and for all the good and bad times. Let's journey on, staying rooted and anchored, neither distracted by success or failure.

“Gratitude doesn't change the scenery. It merely washes clean the glass you look through so you can clearly see the colors.”

Awesome gradation and tones Rebecca. Happy New Year 2014 !
Herry Photos 2014-01-01 10:52:09
Extremely beautiful work, Rebecca! I love the mist that accumulates along the valleys and shows up in both photographs, emphasizing the layering effect of the hills in the distance, and creating and very pleasing atmosphere to them. The soft pastel tones in the sky of this one are gorgeous as well. In my opinion, these two images are the perfect graphicl translation to meditation, and the text that accompanies them could not have been any better suited than this. Inspiring words, inspiring imagery. Count myself lucky to have you as a contact, Rebecca. All the best for you, your family and friends in the new year. A year in which I can't but look forward to your photographic production, Take care!

A fabulous inspiring photos. When one is up early in the morning and taking in this lovely scene, one can't help feeling peaceful and feeling that all things are alright with the world. From the high vantage point looking into the valley and at the life slowly stirring with the crack of dawn, I'm sure you have the fantastic feel of being alive as you breathe in the fresh morning air. Aaah, as I imagined the scene from your eyes; I feel like I need a holiday! ha ha. This is a beautiful evocative shot.
