"Whether it be Foggy..."


...or snowy...
"the clearest way into the Universe
is through a forest
wilderness."

These are both incredibly beautiful! I especially like the foggy one.

I love both but think I'm partial to the snowy one. Are you sure you don't live in colder weather? You do winter very well!

I love them both Margaret, the quote and the art.

I liked the foggy one better. And what a beautiful quote. Nice take on wilderness.

I can identify with this quote. I like both of these pictures. The forest is beautiful during fall and winter too just as are your pictures.

ooooh, flipped forest!! I love them both. I find trees/woods to be such magical places.

I have no idea what to do for 'wilderness.' My thinking cap is on but it's a bit loose today!

How beautiful! You are reminding me that NOW is the time to get out into nature and walk...and get into the Universe! I need it!

These are both lovely and great for the IF Wildnerness theme!

Usually your reverse image looks entirely different. This post is really neat because both are believable images of the forest!

Both lovely, I can see them next to each other in an entryway or hallway...
