“The greatest gift of life on the mountain is time. Time to think or not think, read or not read, scribble or not scribble – to sleep and cook and walk in the woods, to sit and stare at the shapes of the hills.” Philip Connors

Five Photographs – Image 4

The very elegant Arum Lily – sort of a last minute photograph, it was jammed in a small space next to a bridge, I couldn’t see the full extent of the foliage and the light was grim. Yet, in hindsight, I like the contrast between the hard lines of the bitumen infused planks, the glossy green leaves and the crispness of the lily flower.
