high rise


“This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.” 
-Susan Polis Schutz

EYES WIDE SHUT said...

The countless hours I must spend walking alone in the wooded areas around my home, just staring up at the beautiful giant Oaks and photographing them.

I adore trees, their individual characters and spirits, the history they represent, the changing times they have witnessed. If only they could talk, I for one, would gladly listen.

Cathedral grove over on Vancouver Island is still my favourite spot where I am at one with the huge Douglas Firs.

This beautiful photograph sends me there, and fills my heart and soul with joy. A wonderful perspective and a great quote to match
