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.

Photography 101

For the last month I have been sharing my photographs as part of the Photography 101 course and their daily tasks and topics. For some of my posts I have tried to contain more detail than just photographs but as part of a recap that shares some of my favourite, and those of my readers, I wanted to include a gallery of the ten best photographs.

The Lonely Road

The Lake District, UK

The Lake District, UK

In the Lake District it is possible to be completely alone in the middle of the mountains, the closest people miles away. I first went to the Lake District in 2002 and have been back almost every year since. This area is unique in many ways and each time I visit I am blown away by its magnificence.
