It’s easy to find Nirvana at the top of a mountain

lupineI looked up from the viewfinder on my camera for a moment. The sun was low in the sky and the light was hitting the lupines with a violet glow. I wanted to capture this magnificent color during the Magic Hour. When I looked up I took a moment to just stand there and take it all in. The lupines seemed to glow and the colors were beautiful.

I took a deep breath and I instantly relaxed when I took in the clean air at the top of the mountain. The cool evening air enveloped my body. I looked up and saw the peak of the mountain hovering directly above me, somehow its ancient presence making me feel safe. It was quiet and I was alone.

I noticed a sound. It was the sound of bees buzzing. Hundreds of bees. I looked closely at the flowers and saw bumble bees buzzing around the lupines. The buzzing sound became very clear as I became aware of them. I just stood there, at the top of the mountain, by myself and watched them work hard doing what they do, collecting nectar.

As I stood there in that moment, taking in the scene, I felt complete happiness. It was the happiest I had been in a very long time.
