I’ve always found earth patterns fascinating.
Sometimes random, other times symmetrical, other abstract…
It’s very rare that I look towards south
when north, west and most of the east are graced by the sea
south view is beautiful in its own way
There’s a small forest
with hidden treasures.
These are taken from a distance and with a ‘conventional’ camera, so quality isn’t good. However, it’s what I had with me and they serve as reminders!
Enjoy a beautiful Wednesday!
Happy Hump Day!
Remember beauty is everywhere when you keep your eyes and mind open.

That first photo is so interesting! The leaves look like they started spiraling around the tree but it said, “no thanks, I just want to be alone today.” Neat what you realize when you just stand still.
That’s a lovely thought and does look like it! 😉 Thank you, Jess and yes, standing still is definitely somerhing we should practice more often! 😉
For some reason this reminds me of many years ago when I took a trip to Georgian Bay in the winter with my parents and their Skidoos. I didn’t like it in the winter too much so only did this once or twice. Anyhow, the entire island and all water around it was frozen solid. It was entirely quiet. Miles away from civilization. I stood in a remote part and listened to the silence. The only thing I heard was one tiny, frozen leaf moving in the wind.
Sigh. I miss that silence!
My goodness.. what a scene!!! I miss that kind of silence too! 🙄
These are lovely: lush and cool feeling. Love the greens and silver combo 🙂 xx
Ah, thank you, my friend. I wonder how they will look with Medicane above… tok bad I won’t be there to witness it and the sea… 😕
The combination of green and grey that you show strikes me as being somewhat unusual.
Olive trees have this silver gray leafing that can seem unusual. Greece is full of those, so they seem ‘normal’ to me! 😉 But I always love the contrast they create with other trees.
We are our harshest critics…
I love these photos and they have a dreamy quality to them. The first and last two in particular. Of course, each has its charm as well!
We are but I think that helps us evolve and do better! 😉😘
Those two intrigued me after I saw them. They are different spots in that forest yet my framing is oddly the same! 😉 So happy you enjoyed them! They were dreamy to me too!
Many hugs and 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
Happy Thursday, kind lady D! 🤗🤗🤗
True dat! And it’s nice when others tell us, too 😉
Wow! I thought it was the same area taken more than once!
Very much enjoyed
Have a happy Thursday! 😘😘😘🤗🤗🤗
Thank you, Dale!
More hugs your way!!!!!
You have an eye for those hidden treasures, Marina! Sometimes what we typically ignore likes to prove us wrong 🙂 I love them all, but my favorite is the second one. In the chaos of wild spaces, as opposed to cultivated parks and gardens, there’s often the most random and artistic ‘arrangements.’ Hugs for sharing these!
Thank you so much my dearest Mary Jo! You’re right… and I’m so glad when they do (prove us wrong)! And surely wild spaces hold the best secrets! 😉 The red flowers/fruits in the second image, I hadn’t noticed until I saw the photograph!
Many hugs and wishes for beautiful Thursday! 🤗
Thick, rich and Earth Nerve Netted, your pics are wonderful!
Marina, I’m listening to Michael Wollny Trio, as I see this nerve net.
It’s perfect! It’s the Michael Wollny TreeO!
Michael Wollny TreeO is a great listening – I think you’ll love it!
Thank you, sweetie! I really wasn’t satisfied at all with the quality. The zoom was too much and they came out grainy and with not much detail, depth etc, still there was something about them… a reminder.
Ah, perfect with a glass of wine!

Ah, the beautiful greens of nature, thus so to fill our thoughts, as to help us thru the length of Jack Frost’s winter!
Thank you for …both, my dear Jean-Jacques, slight alterations but both beautiful words! 😉 🙏
Ah, that beautiful green as only nature can provide, if but to fill our thoughts to ease the mental length of Jack Frost’s winter…
These are incredibly beautiful scenes! Nature is amazing! ❤️🌹😊🌼
Oh she is… and she’s still waiting for your poem! 😉
Thank you, Holly!
There is a sense of freedom when we are enclosed by the gentleness of trees. Beautiful photos, Marina!! Thank you.
“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.” William Blake
You are so right, Rebecca and that WB quote is wonderful… Thank YOU so very much, my dearest friend! Many many hugs!
