ReQuietening – the natural landscape

‘Viewing…nature’s scenery assuages from the soul all passions frees it from all tensions, brings together its scattered powers invites it to calm contemplation, and strengthens, enlivens, and refreshes it.’ Ludwig Fernow from ‘Römische Briefe’

I thought landscape appreciation was for the middle-aged, but of late I’ve become fixated by the very art that is outside of my my window, and become convinced of the remedial ability of it – the spiritual connection achievable through it. On a rare occasion I’m not going to attempt to discuss, but to show you the quietening potential of the natural landscape… (photographs by myself.)
