Wellington Hills Park - bare trees

as usual, winter offers the opposite of our evergreen reputation ...

that's especially true after days of fog when the sun, low to the horizon, 
momentarily glows through the hazy sky ...

bare trunks and branches radiate their starkness.

Yesterday's sky, Wellington Hills Park

Reflecting on the recent terrible events in France.


The value of walking in nature, feeling the natural ground beneath one's feet and simply enjoying the tranquility of trees and sky cannot, and should not, be under-valued.

Of course there are many wonderful human achievements, qualities and efforts - none the less, our modern world, brims with callousness, cynicism, selfishness … and violence.

Yet there's Nature - a tangible and necessary force that uplifts our spirits and provides calm and tonic, antidotes to a frenzied world.


And, today's sunset


yes, those are the Olympic Mountain in silhouette, as seen from Wellington Hills Park
