    De lens gebruiken om je schilderij af te werken !

    • πŸ™ƒ Hi and thanks, Lynn. May be I should have named this one: ‘When Life gets too Heavy | Prt72’.. But then it should have been in B&W; and in this one I like the warm colors and the feel of the early morning light a lot. So, it’s not Heavy enough.. πŸ˜‰ And the focus is not requiem-portrait- like on the whole trunk; but on a small part in the foreground, where little mosses and fungi have started a new form of Life.. (maybe Almuth from Pflanzwas should take over from here, with her eye for the micro-world and show us what’s next.. πŸ™ƒ).
      When I was looking at this shot in the computer, thoughts popped up about ‘life after death’ and thus this shot somehow became symbolic for the question: ‘Are there layers of consciousness that keep glowing when the earthly lights have faded out.’.. Well, maybe it is ‘too Heavy’ after all. πŸ™ƒπŸ’šβœ‹

      • Whoa, yes, you’re getting heavy now. πŸ˜‰ But it’s good to wonder if consciousness is larger than we know. And does consciousness have to be human? No, so can it exist in the plant world? Of course, some people think so but it can get fuzzy very quickly. I’m reading a book called ‘The Healing Code of Nature’ that talks about the interconnectedness of life in a very intelligent way. I bet you’d like it – maybe you’ve already read it. It’s by Clemens Arvay, who wrote ‘The Biophilia Effect.’
        Thanks for talking about your insights and ideas about the photo. πŸ™‚
