Pleasure in the Pathless Woods

Pleasure in the Pathless Woods


“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.”

Do you know the quote? If you have any quotes about nature I would like to hear them.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.  And you know what you know.
And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.

– Dr Seuss

Lapland in Colour

Can you colourise my life, I’m so sick of black and white?

I recently posted a gallery of images titled Lapland in Black and White so I thought it would only be fair to post a gallery of my colour photographs from the summer so far in Lapland. I have always enjoyed photographing in black and white especially when it comes to landscapes and nature but sometimes a colour image does the job perfectly.

Which do you prefer, colour or black and white?
