Love is the only reality and it is not a mere sentiment. It is the ultimate truth that lies at the heart of creation.
~Rabindranath Tagore

Yep, sure, silence imposed here and all battles stop when facing the wonders of Mother Nature. One can just admire & feel totally rich with the simplicity of what IS. This dominating POV makes us humble, in contradiction. This Beauty is our world to cherrish. Stop running & just feel this damn luck. Thanks for make us stop by here, Pavan. I have a big smile on my face and i breathe so quietly in your frame.
Have a very sweet week.

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

The creation of this beautiful Little Earth has always been of more importance to me than the creation of mankind, Pavan, and an image of such simple yet intense beauty shows exactly why. Mother Nature is my only Goddess, and her majesty, beauty and brutality have no equals. Here I am immersed in the tranquility of the scene as the skyscape alters every second and the clouds leave their shadows dancing across the land below. Drop me off here with my camera and my thoughts, let me dwell here content and happy to be alive. Away from mankind, I can think and breathe, I can feel the bond and connection I have with Mother nature.

A glorious frame. Sadly, the patch of sprawling metropolis down there will no doubt spread as the decades pass and we dumb animals fight nature's plan, breed and spread like the plague on this planet that we are. But right now, such beauty to behold and savour. Superbly captured my friend.
