“Three Trees on the Hillside”

“A forest is not a wilderness, but a community of souls who speak to one another on the wind.”
– Anthony T. Hincks

Nature creates unexpected patterns, those things that are noticeably different than others. Here, a group of three large trees grows together, sharing the same patch of ground. Their neighbours, are spread fairly evenly, each with its patch of ground, its own source of sparse sunlight and nutrients. Yet, these three grew together, sharing everything, so different that it drew my attention right away.

Beyond them, a lengthened patch of sunlight reveals a path untrodden, beckoning exploration. The light is everywhere, despite the ever present veil of green. Above, bright flashes of blue dance in the sky and into the canopy high above.
