Enjoy the Weekend

The Simple Beauty of Nature

A great photograph is a distillation, a reduction of the chaos of our wider experience to a visually satisfying essence where what is excluded is as important as what is included. – David Ward – From the book: “Landscape Within”

I headed to Blendon Woods Metro Park in search of a sunset image. I must also admit it had a lot to do about clearing out the cobwebs between my ears. Gets kind of messy inside the mind every once in a while and I find time in nature and listening to it will clear those cobwebs. Most of the day was without clouds so the sunset was not what I hoped for. On my way to the car I found this small flower posing me. Hope everyone enjoys this upcoming weekend.

    A very nice subtly colorful image. I like the quote and the way you describe obtaining solace in nature.

    Outside, whether beastly warm or freezing cold, is the best way I know to clear my cobwebs. Have a great weekend.

    I often do the same thing, Monte. Those spiders seem to spin new webs as fast as I clear them. ;-)

    Have a good weekend!
