At the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship I attend, there is a ritual for the seasons on the Wheel of the Year. During these services, we call upon the four directions: to the East, we call upon the Wind and Air; to the West, we call upon the Water; to the South, we call upon Fire; to the North, we call upon the Land and Rock. Therefore, where East meets West would be where Wind and Air meet Water. In my experience, it looks something like this:
Where North meets South might be all those places where Rock and Fire interact – think volcanoes and earthquakes. I attended a geology lecture at the public library yesterday and learned that there is a Corvallis Fault that featured in the formation of Mary’s Peak, the tallest mountain in the Oregon Coastal range. And the Cascades across the Valley contain a chain of volcanic peaks, part of the Pacific Ring of Fire created along the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Here’s my experience of what that looks like:

Remarkable images of Wind and Air meet Water! Beautiful landscape, skyscape, water reflections… The sunlight through the trees is breathtaking. I love your take on, Priscilla. Thank you for sharing with us!
You’re so welcome, Amy! Thanks for giving this armchair traveler a look around the world. 🙂
Gorgeous photos to view and inspiring lines ✍️🌹❤️😍 thank you for sharing 👏
Thanks! My pleasure 🙂
Most welcome 🙏 🌹♥️🌹
Well you certainly had the perfect examples to draw from Priscilla – loved your choices and especially loved how you came to the way you organized them.
Great photos. Reflections are always a favorite.
I like how you showed us these elements and experience with your beautiful photos
Beautiful photos. I especially enjoyed the light through the trees in the first group.
Super interesting perspective, and one I didn’t know about so it is informative too. I am however familiar with the Pacific Ring of Fire. The way you brought it to us in photos was beautiful. It was your way…the best way.
Thanks, Donna. Loving your Arizona desert vicariously…sunshine is sparse up here!
We will be trading places in a few months when I will be looking to you for lush and green. Thank YOU.
Clever and interesting, Priscilla – as usual I may say! Wonderful photography and organization of it all.
Sorry I missed this one, but glad I found it Priscilla. It is beautiful! Loved all your images.
