My Most Beautiful Thing

...Is those few minutes at day's end when the mountain range glows orange, lilac, pink or gold in the glory of the setting sun. I speak to the mountains every day from somewhere deep inside of me and each evening, just for a moment, I know my prayers have been heard when I watch Nature's gift of illumination.

(I live in the valley of the majestic Kaimai Range in Waikato, New Zealand. My husband and I have a beautiful view of them from our home, however this photo was taken by hubby from just down the road. Please click on the image to see it larger.)

Today I'm taking part in the My Most Beautiful Thing Blogsplash to celebrate beautiful things - inspired by Fiona Robyn's new novel, The Most Beautiful Thing. Bloggers from all over the world are taking part and writing or posting pictures of their most beautiful things today. Find out more here and see everyone else's blog posts here


  1. As though the earth pauses in prayer and so do you. Congrats also on your year of submissions. Blessings-

  2. This IS gorgeous! Never been to a mountain before, and I can only see them in dreams or photos or books, etc.

    What a gorgeous view! I mentioned you in a blog post of mine. ;)



  3. Thank you, Fiona :)
    Photos just don't do it justice!

  4. Thanks so much, Kathy!
    Wish you could see our home :)
