Mountain Wanderings

Every step forward is creating a tale.

A tale of forests, of creaking, groaning, moaning trees. Taller, ever taller towards the sky, swallowing the light and freezing everything beneath in a tomb of darkness. The air still, and old. The world has slowed here, the ancient veins of the pines sinking their hold on this place.

A tale of beaches shaped by time, of sand beneath and between our toes. White and fine, the shells have been withered to a dust through the ages. The shallow waves lap into the edge of this tiny island we call home, claiming the earth for the ocean wash by wash.

A tale of rocky mountain paths, of sore feet and sweeping vistas. Towering above us, the sheer drops and tumultuous peaks loom dauntingly. We trudge forward, each movement harder than the last but ever onwards we must travel. The mountains calls us.

Though we may be weary from our journey long, there are so many steps left to take and so many mountains to conquer. Thus, onwards our tale goes.

            10. I love the atmosphere in your pictures. It makes me want to start wandering right away. I'm really wondering where this is? It looks like a place in the Alpes I once walked in the mountains and swam in the icecold lake. Lots of love, Janna

              1. Wow, what a lovely comment to read, those words are something any creatives would wish to hear so we're very grateful. Thank-you! That sounds so beautiful, wandering around the mountains is always so tranquil and magical. We took these around Snowdonia, UK (a little smaller than the Alps but just as beautiful in their unique way!)

              1. The world is full of beautiful places, and the UK has it's fair share! I guess the lesson we've learned is that you can find sweeping vistas and breathtaking scenery right on your doorstep, you simply have to open your mind and know where to look! Thanks for your support!
