Voyage of Discovery in a Familiar Venue

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

This  park on rolling hills overlooking  exurban Detroit, and  an easy drive  from my home, offers a familiar venue for casual conversations with Nature.  But, the  light filtering through the leaves above to dapple the forest floor allows–if a favorable mood appears–for  seeing  the woods anew on any given sultry, summer afternoon.

    Hello Tom, I’ve been absent for far too long but how lovely to return and find you publishing beautiful pictures of your lovely place which I always felt somehow pacified by. It makes me happy to be back.

    These photos are gorgeous, Tom. I, too love shadows, especially these dappled shadows in summer. There is a Japanese word for dappled shadows from leaves – Komorebi. I translates as “the sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees”.
