City Views

There is something so impressive about looking at a city from up high above all the action. There’s a stillness you get when you’re beyond the movement of people, cars and operational sounds.

Some people pay top dollar for that stillness to be a regular part of their lives. The stillness reminds them of peace. We all know that peace cannot be bought. It comes and goes with every breath we take and whether we are in stillness or commotion we have peace or don’t. It lives inside our hearts.

  1. Love both of these ‘view’ shots and love that you did them in b & w.
    But what I love even more are your astute insights.

  2. Fantastic Panoramas. You know I love those views since I don’t get to see them very often in NJ. The mountains are so impressive!

  3. It’s kind of magical seeing a city from above and I never thought about how part of the appeal is separating the city from it’s noise. I love reading your thoughtful posts, Heather. Also, I never would have known that Temecula was such a sprawling city. I’m guessing it has changed a lot since I lived in SD County in the 70s.

  4. Very nice Heather. I only have very few photos from that perspective. I like the way the mountains envelope the city in the second shot. Black & White was a great choice again.

  5. That dull hum of sound on the mountaintop is unforgettable – and the miniature bustle of city life below.

  6. As the others have said, beautiful images with such thoughtful personal reflections accompanying them.

  7. You are so right, Heather. Peace is within us, or not!
