Because the wind is high
It blows my mind
Because the sky is blue
It makes me cry. . .

Love is all
Love is new
Love is all
Love is you. . .

This Beatles song pretty much says it all for me about this image. . .
Nature and it’s beauty truly blows my mind. . . . I was inspired by the song and the wonders of color and creation all around us.
