Against all odds

Nature has a magical ability to find ways of developing in adverse circumstances. It is happening all around us and we all to often fail to reflect on the positive lessons it offers us. I myself am guilty of this and need to consciously remind myself that ‘life is good’, even when it seems misted by unwanted influences.


I wish I could live in the now, you see so much more, smell so much more, hear so much more, appreciate so much more. I from time to time get glimpses of the now, but not enough!


Note: This was taken on a visit to Brimham rocks yesterday with the Leeds flickr group, I was anxious about being there and coming away with the same kind of images as everybody else, but I now know that isn’t possible. We all see things differently, that’s what makes it so bloody interesting.


Note:Just found out that this shot has been included in the “landscape photographer of the year” book and exhibition at the national theatre in London. I’m thrilled to bits to be in the book and it’s wonderful that some good friends have also been included.
