    As a child I remember the dark winding roads of

    the jungle. The light of the head lamps alluminating just enough of the road up ahead kept us from veering off into the darkness. The night surrounded us, engulfing us. If you looked hard enough you could see the arms of the trees crossing over each other obove our heads...

    Lilacs are out now where I live.

    .. What do they remind you of, and what do they smell like to you? I think they are intoxicating. It depends on how hot or cool the day is, and how mature the lilac is. Sometimes they smell fresh and crisp like a grape jellybean, the last one left in the Easter basket, lol...

    I love those moments.

    ..those little moments when nature reminds you to slow down, let everything go, and just be.

    My Dad was a beautiful simple man

    and he always inspired me to dream big. Whenever we were lucky to see one of these he would always say ' it's true Luv, you just have to find the end that has the gold and the best part is always the journey' So fitting that I got to capture one of these yesterday on my way...

    I love the outdoors as much

    or more than most. I have met a few people on here who are as passionate as me about the out doors. I have one question to them and the rest of the community, Why is man spoiling it. I read and listen to people complain about trash in the streets and parks...pick it up..bend...

    Today I went on a long hike through the forest,

    and crossed the creek over fallen trees. I saw an owl. Being alone and breathing in the scent of the pines and grasses just gives me that tingly sensation all over. You know that feeling.

    I just saw a huge pillar of clouds,

    and at the very top was a halo - the literal silver lining - and in it was the rainbow spectrum all around the cloud, it was most beautiful thing I've ever seen!

    My passion for the outdoors prompted my move to

    The Experience Of Walking Outdoors

    It's very beautiful outside tonight. I always think it's beautiful outside at nighttime though. I live in a part of the city where there are so very many trees, and a couple streams, and woodsy areas and little animals about. The sky is open and uninterrupted by tall buildings...

    There is no better place to be.

    Walking barefoot in the forest and feeling the texture of the ground. I think everyone should go out everyday and stare into the trees at least for an hour. I believe the world would be so much better.

    Right now I'm at the cemetery

    where my parents r buried (cremated). Behind the mausoleum there is a landscaped garden with a waterfall and walking trails. It is so beautiful & peaceful I could sit here all day. Unfortunately the cemetery is abt 50 miles from where I live, so I don't get out here often. If I...

    I'm tired and more than a little depressed

    after a day of work. It's 2 AM, and nothing seems to be going my way... But then, after one dew-laced breath of night forest air, I suddenly feel like I could run a marathon. Nature is amazing.

    I work for the park service,

    so I spend most of my time outdoors. It's the perfect job for those who want to be out in nature. I get paid to wander through God's creation, watching nature at its best producing flowers and the off spring of new life filling the woods, creeks, and marshes. What a great job

    Spring unbound itself from the hold of

    winterQuietly slipping out of it's graspTeasing and tauntingSwelling, and opening, and bursting forthSpreading her colorful mantle over theundulating landscape...But alas, she awoke to feel the cool sting of winter on her fresh surface!One last reminder of it's dominance.

    Since I Was Young

    I love living on the coast

    so much. Simple things like driving winding roads, through forests of tall gums, sunlight dancing through the trees illuminating, bark & leaves. Reminding me how small we really are. Then I get home in time to watch the huge sets roll in over the bay, as the sun sinks into the...

    Yesterday, I took a walk along a local nature

    trail just to relax and unwind from a rather stressful day. Usually I take so many photos but only took a few as I was more concerned with taking in my surroundings rather than photographing them. I enjoyed the sights and sounds of the birds, deer, rabbits, herons and the...

    My view today =) Idk what it is

    but there's something about nature that brings peace to the mind. Is it the wind blowing gently and softly brushing up against the skin? Is it the birds chirping creating beautiful melodies? Maybe it's basking in the warmth of the sun kissing the skin ever so softly? Idk but...
