Silent Paths

The sounds of silence

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge provides the theme of Silence.

One of the wonderful things about going into Nature, is that you experience a kind of silence that we can never get around the cities and towns, in which most of us live.  For me, there’s nothing like the silence of being in the woods, far enough away from civilization that the only sounds that remain are produced by Nature.

Of course, these locales are not completely silent, but it appears that the sounds that are present become part of a tapestry, such that it doesn’t disturb, but, rather, envelop our own presence within the woods.

Silent Path

This moss-surrounded path allowed for very quiet walking, so that I felt part of the landscape.  Also, the moss made for a wonderful resting place!

Have a wonderful day!
