The Gallery – Nature

It is us. And yet it is, so much bigger than us… so much greater and more powerful than we will ever be. It bred us. It nurtures us. We in turn cultivate it … and destroy it … and battle with our consciences and our wills to revive it.

It is inside us. We are dependent upon it. But it could wipe us out at will, without so much as a by or leave. It will never ask our permission. We will never, ever be able to stand in its way.

It is all powerful, transcendent …

It is life.

    • This was my ‘odd-one out pic’ … actually taken in Africa and was straight out of the cam as they say. The colours really were like this.

    Fantastic pictures. Such a mix of colours and textures. Can I just say, while we’re talking transcendence, your words have transcended the pictures. Powerful prose, MJM. I like.

  7. Gorgeous. I love that third shot, breath taking and the sun beams in the first one…all of them actually! Beautiful words as always. x

    • The snowy ones are the Sella Ronda in Italy – just over the border of Germany actually so very accessible (if you can ski!) and the last one is South Africa in the Addo National Park (don’t ask me for a link … !)
      So off you pop then … ;-)

  11. that last picture is magnificent!

  12. Oh, they are gorgeous. I adore snow. And your words are even more breathtaking.
