Nature ...

Ireland 1990: Landscape #1, © Joan Z. Rough

"Nature ... is the wheel that drives our world. Those who ride it willingly might yet catch a glimpse of a dazzling, even a spiritual restfulness, while those who ... insist that the world must be piloted by man for his own benefit will be gathering dust but no joy."
Mary Oliver

Fabulous image! If I didn't see the word 'landscape' there, it would just be a mysterious evocative painting to me. I like the quote too.

A fascinating photo - and Mary Oliver always has just the right words to make you think.
