Christopher Martin does indeed live in one of the most beautiful regions of Western Canada. The Kananaskis, Banff and Canmore Rocky Mountain areas provide many wonderful opportunities “to get lost in the details” of a nature or wildlife scene. On the opposite side of the Rocky Mountain range – wonderful, beautiful and gorgeous British Columbia – the Kootenays also provides many opportunities to “get lost in the details”. My page The Falls illustrates the beauty of the Southern Rocky Mountain region.
Close to the viewpoint of Myrtle Mountain in the Kimberly Nature Park is a wonderful old snag reaching for the sky. From a distance, one can see the colors but little else.
Getting up close, the color is striking, the detail in the bark and grain of the wood is stunning. I even laid down in the snow – with my snowshoes on (not an easy feat!)
to try to capture the curve of the tree.
Get lost in the details of this old snag.
All of these photographs were taken with my ipad and processed through Snapseed.
This snag has reminded me of life’s journey. Sometimes one needs to “get lost in the details” to find grace, beauty, happiness and joy.
