Lens-Artists Challenge #90 – Distance

Sometimes the light seems so far in the distance:

Sometimes the destination seems so far in the distance:

This was on our road trip from Bend Oregon, heading to Mt. Hood.  We thought this was our destination and discovered it was not Mt. Hood…  We think it is Mt. Washington.

Sometimes we are reminded of the distance past:

This showed up in our hotel room last year

Sometimes the bottom seems so far in the distance:

Looking down from the tram at Palm Springs

Sometimes the horizon seems so far in the distance:

Sometimes, the hotel seems so far in the distance 👣👣👣

Sometimes morning seems so very distant:

Sometimes paradise is so very distant:

My beach is most often in the distant past, and yet I’m always dreaming and planning my next beach visit in the distance to come.

    1. Oh my goodness Patti, me too! Our May trip to Utah will need to be cancelled. This is teaching me to look at the good, not the negative. We will need to rethink things. Thank you 😊

    1. Thank you Anne! That phone was too pretty to be super old (I think) but it kind of made a cool picture ☎
