Beautiful


Beautiful, yes!

Yesterday I was watching Art Wolfe, Travels to the Edge.
Do you ever watch that show?
The photography is amazing.
I noticed he kept describing the sights as "beautiful".
I find I use that word a lot when I visit many of your blogs
and see something beautiful.
Beautiful just doesn't seem like enough of a word when
my breathe is taken away.
I have thought and thought about other words to use.

Some of the words I have thought of:
Gorgeous
Amazing
Spectacular
Lovely
Eye Candy
Delightful
Attractive
Wonderful
Great
Lovely
Pretty
Marvelous
Exceptional

Nothing seems to justify for a sight that is beautiful.
How do you describe it?

I find I overuse 'amazing.' Might just use 'spectacular' or 'exceptional' a bit more.

I use the words beautiful and wonderful too much. Thanks for the suggestions of other words to use!

That certainly is a beautiful photo.

An overused word could be awesome and a funny one would be pulchritude.

stunning?

Just reading all these words together is, well, beautiful!

Lovely just feels right to me these days, it just flows...

I like to save exceptional for the really, really, really amazing, delightful, things that cross my path!

I ADORE the picture! I guess I say "pretty" often, my guys tease me now about how "it has to be pretty!"

I enjoyed your thoughts about beautiful words.

I've always enjoyed the more old-fashioned word - beauteous - I always thought it was a lovely version of the word.
