Shadows come and go but like strong character, trees are what really leave their mark on the world.

  1. Such a thoughtful interpretation and a thoughtful quote, Lisa. Recognition and awards are something that happen in the moment and can be forgotten the next moment. But it is character and the way we are that will touch others the strongest and leaves the biggest impact. Beautiful lake, beautiful shot. It looked liked a lovely day for a walk 🙂
