a gift to others….

“The planting of a tree, especially one of the long-living hardwood trees, is a gift which you can make to posterity at almost no cost and with almost no trouble, and if the tree takes root it will far outlive the visible effect of any of your other actions, good or evil.” George Orwell

How many have you planted?

 A historical note: a gentleman, up in the tree trimming branches, was killed some years ago and fell to the base of the tree.

old skin…

O murmuring heart! thy pleasures may decay,
Thy faith grow cold, thy golden dreams take wing;
Still in the realm of faded youth and joy,
Heaven kindly leaves some bird of hope to sing.
Albert Laighton, “In the Woods,” c.1859

Photography: Contours

old snag SBIt seems that I am often drawn to the curvature of nature more than the straight lines of the urban setting. When a shot is pleasing to me or at first captures my eye, it is the combinations of curves and sometimes the human insertion of structure. Otherwise, give me the mix of curves and lines.

Climb 2 PTMtns SBxI worked my way toward a ridge line, in hopes of gaining a vista. The climb, as usual, was longer, steeper and more exacting than I had imagined. The rocks more abrasive, the footing ever more tenuous as muscles grew tired, I finally slowed and realized my limitations for the day.

I enjoyed the moment in this harsh landscape of tans, greys, browns, pale greens and lightening induced black. I found one bright spot of color on the way down.
