In The Presence Of Wonder

“In the presence of wonder, the head has no answers

and the heart has no questions.”

  1. Lovely landscapes. The colours are so vivid. And the air is so clean.

    • Thank you. It was my first time on the steam train up Mount Snowdon and I loved it. I was blessed to have such good weather that day which made for a clear view.

  2. Magnificent photos, dear friend!

  3. Fabulous! 🙂 🙂 Wish I was there!

  4. Stunning photos, Izzy, of a place that is, indeed, what one imagines as heaven.

  5. Mooie wolken foro’s en wat zal d

  6. Beautiful scenery! The rail is remarkable. Thank you for the link!

  7. Beautiful, we visited years ago, the train broke down and we had to walk down. Plus we saw nothing because the cloud was so low, so its lovely to see what we missed 🙂 Thank you 🙂

  8. That floating mass of cloud adds striking contrast to the image. Beautiful capture, Izzy
