Are You Barking Up The Wrong Tree??? by NatureGreeting Cards ©ccwri

My Buddy was having a fit barking up this tree, well I couldn’t see a thing, but while looking up there, I liked the perspective.

As I first looked up, of course the very first thing that caught my eye was the gorgeous backlighting, and what a lovely warm, and welcoming feel the light in this simple frame had.

A Special Moment, looking to the light

Sometimes we all can get really way too down with the cares of this life, and we began to dwell on them all, just a little too much.
We forget to look up for the light, and the good things that are happening around us, no matter how tiny or how small.
At times we forget to let ourselves see, or notice the small things.
And in doing so, the bigger things can really get us down. One thing we should all remember, and I needed to remember it today, too.
To, remind my self, to look to the possitive things in my life no matter how small, and to dwell on those things, to be happy about those things. Be thankful for what I do have, and rejoice in that. Not dwelling on the bad things, or the things I didn’t have.
What we look at, and what we allow our eyes to see constantly are either the LIGHT, and all the good things, or the darkness, and all the evil things .
If we only dwell on the bad things, and only those things consume our mind, and thinking. Then our hearts become so heavy, too heavy, and loaded down with the saddness.
Mother nature always reminds us, if we will only listen. No matter how violent the storm, the sun is forever shinning, even if we can’t see the light, it is always there.
Its during the storms, and the darkest times we need to look to the light the most, and let all its goodness into our thinking, and let it warm our souls.
The light will always win over the darkness, this image reminded me, and made me think to pull my head up out from the darkness, and look for the light, to the good things, and to do that a lot more often.
This is what made this image a very special moment for me.
I really enjoy looking to the light in my photography, no matter how simple, or complex the scene.
Looking to the top, one can see how the trees are flourishing in the light.
Such a simple scene, but for me it holds a whole lot of meaning.
A photograph should speak a thousand words, without even one word being said.
Today, I stepped out of my box, and added a few more words about how this image inspired me. It was my food, for thought today.

Proust once said, The real voyage of discovery

Consist not of seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
