Reflection in blue – Craigellachie National Nature Reserve.
A perfect blue sky reflecting in the lochan, with just a few floating leaves… and no wind!
A few thoughts on Nature and appreciation this week…
“Nature never did betray the Heart that loved her.”
“Fresh beauty opens one’s eyes wherever it is really seen, but the very abundance and completeness of the common beauty that besets our steps prevents its being absorbed and appreciated. It is a good thing, therefore, to make short excursions now and then to the bottom of the sea among dulse and coral, or up among the clouds on mountain-tops, or in balloons, or even to creep like worms into dark holes and caverns underground, not only to learn something of what is going on in those out-of-the-way places, but to see better what the sun sees on our return to common everyday beauty.”
– John Muir, Scots-born American naturalist.
