Please read, these are my feeling also. Thanks for looking. I love photographing mountain top landscape. I did my first vision quest on this mountain top. Not only that, but I hope to go back soon to Virginia.
From the top of a mountain, we are able to witness life from a different perspective, bringing us a new awareness.
Mountains have always captured our imaginations, calling us to scale their heights, to circle and worship at their feet, and to pay homage to their greatness. Mountains can be seen from thousands of miles away, and if we are lucky enough to be on top of one, we can see great stretches of the surrounding earth. As a result, mountains symbolize vision, the ability to rise above the adjacent lowlands and see beyond our immediate vicinity. From the top of the mountain, we are able to witness life from a new perspective?cities and towns that seem so large when we are in them look tiny. We can take the whole thing in with a single glance, regaining our composure and our sense of proportion as we realize how much bigger this world is than we sometimes remember it to be.
Henry David Thoreau, “Walden,” 1854
