“If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
Just east of Bancroft, Ontario is a north-south connector road known as Boulter Road, which, naturally takes you to, and through, the small town of Boulter. The road travels north from McArthur Mills and offers spectacular views of the high rolling hills so typical of this area.
The warm summer days are upon us and the typical Ontario ‘summer’ clouds float lazily in the skies. It’s been dry and the grasses begin to yellow as they go dormant, flecks of wildflowers brightening the scene further, waiting for rain.
As I look back on this image, I can almost hear the crickets chirping and the cicadas buzzing in the heat. A very pleasant day indeed.
It’s not a very dynamic photo by current internet standards. There are no awesome sunsets, shimmering lakes, or rugged mountains, but it does remind me that I live in a wonderful part of the world that I can enjoy for what it is.
