Description

Sitting beside this pond in the evening light caused me to begin a number of mental journeys. I thought of how rich and diverse life is: that this pond was the source of an awesome force. And then I mused about the nature of beauty, of whether it existed independently or if I and my perceptions were the source. Big questions sprang from this small pond and my camera that led me to it. :) (N&L)
