Some journeys are about a quest: An adventure, the magic of course, and about treasures and love. *
The Matterhorn German-American painter, Albert Bierstadt
The greatest gift of life on the mountain is time. Time to think or not think, read or not read, scribble or not scribble— to sleep and cook and walk in the woods, to sit and stare at the shapes of the hills. ~ Phillip Connors
Frühling am See Austrian painter, Alois Tott
You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain; I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care. As the peach-blossom flows down stream and is gone into the unknown, I have a world apart that is not among men. Green Mountain ~ Li Bai
The Watzmann German Romantic landscape painter, Caspar David Friedrich
The collection of pictures is from everywhere 😉 This summer is rich in natural beauty. I found amazing hawthorn in a military training area. They had shooting drills in a separate area, so no danger. By the river I find white throated dipper in winter, but now the bird is back home in Norway. The meadow grass glittered with dew, and everything oozed with Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
