HI EVERYONE - MY NEXT BRISTLECONE IMAGE IN THIS SERIES WILL APPEAR ON THURSDAY, APRIL 28 - SORRY - I HAVE BEEN RATHER BUSY AT WORK THIS WEEK ;-) THANK YOU


The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, Located in the White Mountains of California the Inyo National Forest...

An Ancient Bristlecone Pine, thousands of years old, reaches to the sky, sending his prayer up to the Spirit of Nature...
The Spirit returns her message saying to him: " Stay strong, stay sure, stay peaceful.... Energize the souls of all who pass your way... Empart peace and tranquility to the troubled ones who gaze upon you. Lift their heart and allow them to see and truly feel the beauty and energy of this sacred place we call ..

The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest."

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
