Note Card Party - Mountains


Make yourself a cup of tea, grab a cookie or two, pull up a chair and join us for Vee's Note Card Party! Here's where we display 4 photos previously shown on our blogs that we think would make great note card photos. 

"poems of geology" (Norman Maclean)
My regular blog readers will recognize these photos as I've shown them all in August. Above, Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things" (Henry Miller)
 I never tire of this photo. It's definitely going to be enlarged and hang somewhere in my home. Lake Louise in the morning mist.


"It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out, it's the grain of sand in your shoe" (Robert W. Service)
 This rather daunting-looking mountain has a trail up the other side, not visible in the photo. Its shape evokes its name - the Big Beehive, with Mirror lake at its base.

"I lift my eyes to the mountains; where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121
 Lastly, Lake Agnes with Mount Whyte (left) and Mount Niblock (partially hidden on the right) in the background. 

So there you have it. Mountains. Thanks, Vee, for hosting the Note Card Party once again.

These are intensely beautiful. Really special shots! The perfect clarity makes them magical!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Amazing! And the quotes and scriptures really make them special! You need enlargements of ALL of these! Sweet hugs!

Dawna Motz said...

I am getting a post ready for the party too! I agree that the Lake Louise photo is one that you should frame and hang on the wall! That is a beautiful shot!

Happyone said...

They are gorgeous and all would make beautiful note cards.

Vee said...

These photos are fabulous and I especially appreciate the sentiments you used. The one about sand in the shoe really struck home. I am glad that you will frame the second one of Lake Louise in the clearing mist. There's just something about that shade of green and that red canoe.

Those mountains are breath taking - absolutely stunning - amazing - there just aren't words. Fabulous photos. Each one is my favorite - I'd really love to see the tallest one - and the beehive and the lakes!! I agree - frame them all and hang them up.

aimee said...

All of these are beautiful-- and I would love to see the beehive! But the Lake Louise one-absolutely gorgeous!!
My favorite season (from the last post)? Autumn--early autumn and I can hardly wait:)
Blessings,
Aimee

Absolutely beautiful photos! Mountains are so majestic. I think my favorite picture is the one of Lake Louise. It is definitely one to frame!

Marilyn said...

Yes, all four of them would make beautiful notecards. I would love receiving one. If I had to choose my favorite it would be the second one.

Carole Reid said...

I've missed you Lorrie! With the baby and her mommy here for going on three weeks now I've been doing so much hugging, patty-caking, and laundry I haven't had time to visit any blogs. You've been busy too I see. Hasn't this been an amazing summer. September and October should be incredible also. Take care. Great cards. xo Carole

Karen and Gerard said...

Breath taking pictures here! What a gorgeous collection this is--love mountain scenery. My favorite is Lake Louise morning mist too! You should definitely enlarge that one and hang it up where you can see it every day!

Snap said...

Stunning! Lake Louise in the morning mist is just magical. Wonderful selections for Vee's party.

Blackberry Lane said...

Marvelous pictures and great choices for note cards. Have a nice day.

Debbie said...

I know I've said this before, but I will say it again: Your landscape and the images you capture from it are just majestic. I can't even imagine what it would be like to see it in person. I don't think I could keep my breath in.

The quotes you shared to go with them are just as beautiful. My favorite is the second one.

Donna said...

These are perfect for note cards - AND for prints on your walls! Bravo!!!

Susan Nowell @ My Place to Yours said...

Two and four are my favs. But Lake Louise in the mist is my VERY fav. Absolutely stunning! This would definitely make a fantastic set of notecards!

Jill said...

Stunning photographs. Perfect quotes for them.

Cheryl said...

Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Every one of these photos is stunning, but the photo of Lake Louis...there are no words. I am glad to know that you will frame it. It is definitely frame-worthy. (Have you ever entered any photo contests? That one looks like a winner to me!)

ellen b. said...

These are such lovely views, Lorrie! What beauty you experienced!

Carol said...

These mountains are so beautiful & majestic! Perfect choices for the note card party!

Smiles,
Carol

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Gorgeous photos, Lorrie! I think the Canadian Rockies are much more dramatic that the Rockies in Colorado as they seem to be more sharp and jagged on top. The Lake Louise photos is so peaceful and dreamy looking -- I can see why it's your favorite!

Beth said...

These are awesome! That one of the mt. in the mist is incredible---almost surreal. I'd definitely have that hanging somewhere in my house!

What incredibly beautiful photographs! I think my favorite is Lake Louise, but they are all stunning!

These would make gorgeous paintings, soooo beautiful. God's masterpieces, and you captured them beautifully. Bravo! xo

Linda Jo said...

These are all gorgeous!!! But I absolutely LOVE the 2nd one with Lake Louise in the foreground. Can't wait to see it enlarged and hanging! Beautiful!!!!
