What Do You See In Nature?



I thought this would be a short and light entry. Every time I see this picture I took in the woods on a trip to West Virginia, I stop and study it. I took the picture because I felt a strange pull to stop on the path and turn and take a shot. It was just woods, like any other woods. But there was something there. Something I didn't see when I took the photo, but that showed itself to me later...

Do you see a heart? Do you see a kiss sign?

  2. Yeah, crazy, huh? The "X" is in the distance behind it. I have this thing I do on vacations. I hold the camera up and take a picture where I have a sense I should take one without even looking at the viewfinder. I do the same thing on ghost hunts and I have good success and apparently, I intuitively do on vacations too. Hee hee

  3. And I see a monster behind it all too. :) At least it's smiling. See picture but then look at it on your board because it's easier due to the dark template.

  4. I think sometimes those things we dont notice at first are there for a reason-that is a great pic!! man some of the pics you and others post from non-desert climates make me want to go back to Colorado in the fall-really anywhere where there is an actual change of seasons-I think the closest I ever was to your original area you grew up in was in Wilmington North Carolina-by the ocean-I just loved it there for the short time I was there-all the best to you!!

  6. I see the grapevine heart, the x and it is showing the history of the woods in the picture. Very calm and peaceful. :)

  7. Something happens when I go where it's green, perhaps because I'm autumnforest, but the pictures I have from that particular trip were so amazing that I want to climb into them. Gotta go back there some time further into autumn and get more shots. If anyone wants to know the area it's Pipestem Resort, WV--the trail behind cabin #1. When we vacationed there, it was Halloween month and I decorated the cabin with findings from the woodlands and pretended I lived there full time. It was the most blissful time I can ever recall. I hiked back into the woods with my laptop and tried to capture descriptions of all the ways it smells and sounds for my novel "The Thicket." Then, I went into the towns of Hinton and Nimitz where I've been hundreds of times and I tried to capture bits and pieces for the novels towns of "Upper" and "Lower." Every writer needs a trip like that!

  8. Atrueoriginall;
    I also noticed on the tree to the far right in the foreground, there's an alien face. Do you see it? Every time I see that picture, I see something new.

  9. I'll look harder for it. I see a tall green man. After I'm done doing my bloggies today I'll do up a couple of pix of other things I saw I didn't mention - plus the green man.

  12. Thanks. My family thinks I'm weird, but I do a shot at every vacation spot called "feet on vacation" where I crowd us together, wearing shoes appropriate for the surroundings like sneakers in the woods, sandals on the beach, and get a shot that's indicative of where we're vacationing. Such as, feet on vacation might be hanging over the rim as we recline near the edge, or feet on vacation in that forest was us standing in a pile of autumn leaves... If you let your instinct shoot and don't ask questions, you can get some pretty cool things. It works extremely well on a ghost hunt.
