O Let Them Be Left...

Posted by Pavan Kaul (Mumbai, India) on 18 July 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and wildness? Let them be left,
O let them be left, wildness and wet,
Long live the weeds and the wildness yet.

~Gerard Manley Hopkins

L'eau : le plus beau des trésors ! sans qui la vie serait impossible, on n'en a pas toujours conscience et on la gaspille trop souvent sans compter ! Là en plus dans cette belle image elle est joliment mise en valeur avec cette cascade ! Superbe ! Bonne journée

I love the sensation again here, it is such an ode to Nature and that water falling seems so pure, and so at ease in her quiet rush over the back of the mountain, i could look at this for hours, how soothing, thank you*

Priscilla from Amsterdam, Netherlands

Wow, what a vantage point!

18 Jul 2011 4:33pm


A perfect marriage of frame and words. Mother nature and Little Earth, my Goddess and religion of sorts, and a world that functions so perfectly without the interference and intervention of mankind, who sees fit to try and control, manipulate, play the prophet. I'm heading back home to be with my family for a month in BC, Canada soon, and cannot wait to immerse myself in the landscape there, where mankind numbers so few compared to the vast wilderness and animal kingdom, where I can just lose myself with my camera and have time to savour the land and sea.

This frame get's me in the mindset for that journey, putting me in my place, eyes adoring, thoughts so humble. A stunning image my friend.
