    geez, that’s good…I should be happy that a line like that was written instead of wringing my hands with wishing I’d written it…

  3. Here it was like someone flipped a switch. One day nothing and the next hundreds of birds singing. It was great!

  6. I could stare at those mountains forever. Nice how you used the bird instead of trying to hide the pole… 😉

    • I’d be right there staring with you, Gunta…and the photo was actually about the bird, that’s why I made it as I did, pole and all…the bird really was singing up there…a car would pass on the Cedar Fort Road (just below and out of frame of the image) and it would be loud…then the car would be gone and then the bird was singing again…it was so quiet out there…except for the sweet song of the bird…I just had to take the photo…and it didn’t hurt to have such a beautiful background for that tiny little dot of a bird up there. 😉

      • I wonder if it was a meadowlark? There’s lots of them out there.

        April 11, 2013 at 7:21 pm

        • I really don’t know…was kind of far to tell and I don’t know their songs…but it was really sweet…..

          • A closer look makes me think the shape isn’t right for a meadowlark and they tend to stay closer to the ground. But here’s what they sound like:

          • I want to say that that is exactly what it sounded like…or maybe I just heard that while I was out there, too…I did notice some bits of yellow flitting about…but it struck me immediately when I heard the recording from that site…I think that might be it…….thank you for the link. 🙂

  7. Fabulous Scott. ..and the quiet was sad without her. Wonderful words. 🙂

    • Thank you very much, Adrian. It rather felt that way out there…..

  8. So tiny against the mountins. So quiet the world would be if they stops singing.

    April 11, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    • It would be very sadly quiet, Bente….

  9. Beautiful words and photo! I’m sure she had a lot to sing about that view of hers!

    April 11, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    • Thank you, Susan…and she certainly did. 🙂

  10. She sang partly because of the beauty of her surroundings. Those mountains inspire.

    • I’m sure she did, Terry…and the mountains are very inspiring…..

  11. “The quiet was sad without her” Gosh, I think that’s going to stick in my head. Beautiful, Scott.
