“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured. And every young farmboy knows that the hardest and noblest wood has the narrowest rings, that high on the mountains and in continuing danger the most indestructible, the strongest, the ideal trees grow.”- Hermann Hesse, Bäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte

Cool vs Warm

Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: #16 is all about Color basics. I love colors, but most, I love cool tones. I didn’t know that up until I started to learn about photography. If you browse around, you’ll notice that most of my photos have cool tones. So this was a challenge I wanted to take in order to learn a bit more and play with editing.

Here’s how everything looks like in terms of cool and warm colors:

So, my photos for today are:

    Cool                            vs.                           Warm

Thank you Cee, for this assignment.





“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”
Yoko Ono



As the spring comes, people revive.


A leap of faith into abyss.


A promise worth keeping a lifetime.


Cold and darkness are best friends.
