Here in Washington State, most folks are used to seeing scenes like this....a monolithic concrete and stone structure bordered by (or surrounded by) one of nature's charms, such as a bush or plants or majestic trees.
And so, scenes like this, become somewhat commonplace.
I rather enjoy scenes like this....they fortify and defend the principle of coexistence...

And Coexistence is something we need more least in my opinion!!

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

I like the visual here and as always, your words. I agree. My little nation of 36 million people (less than the state of California) is currently trying to coexist with the new reality represented by the titanic moron who was elected to the highest office despite having three million fewer votes than his opponent (yay for the electoral college system)… NAFTA makes me laughta.

@Darkelf Photography: Thank you so much, kind sir. I think that most (or many) of my images are not technically correct or workable....but I always try to write words that make an attempt at connecting the image to my conscios conscience and heart and I let thise be my guide... Sometimes it’s cool, sometimes it stinks but I just roll with it..ok ;-). Thank you So Very Much, sir!
