Lur is the Basque Mother, the Birth Giver and Creator. Unlimited in all directions, She includes the stars, moon and sun inside her borders. The Earth is alive: she gives birth to the mountains, that grow and rise towards the sky, whilst other places subside. It is believed that inside the Earth, there are subterranean milk streams, inaccessible to men unless they find one of the caverns and gorges that link those places to the surface.
The Milky Way and millions of other stars above Mt Adams and a field of lupine and paintbrush. Goat Rocks Wilderness, Washington, August 2012. This is another image from our recent 4 day backpacking trip in the Goat Rocks. This was the only clear night while we were out and I took full advantage of the conditions. To me it seemed like the wildflowers were all looking up and admiring the stars just like I was while creating this image. Taken August 22nd 2012 Copyright : Scott Smorra
