In my landscape photographs I like to use the 16:9 crop so, in this photo of a single image is cropped to that ratio.
I don’t care if the camera puts the horizon in the center, because the clouds are my focus point, not pun intended.
The photograph was taken in Elka Park NY, looking at Indian Head from Platte Clove road which is closed in April according to Google maps.
This photo brings me back to that peaceful morning and smelling the good clean mountain air and thanking God for the beautiful trees.
VENUS IN FURS
by: Leopold von Sacher-Masoch
You cannot deny that love lasts for only a brief moment, uniting two beings as a single being that is capable of only one thought, one sensation, one will.
The person who doesn’t know how to subjugate will all too quickly will feel the other’s foot on the nape of his neck.
Man desires, woman is desired.
The true comic muse is the one with tears running down under her laughing mask.
Full moon! There it was, peeping over the tops of the lower firs that edged the park, and a silvery haze filled the terrace, the clumps of trees, the entire landscape as far as the eye could see, and the haze blurred softly into the distance like quivering waters.
It is merely the egoism of the man, who wants to bury a woman like a treasure. All attempts at using vows, contracts, and holy ceremonies have failed to bring permanence into the most changeable aspect of changeable human existence, namely love.
