Wanting to emanate nature’s perfection

Nature is perfect, it is wise, serene
It brings out the best in us, it gives
Us hope and strength to strive for more
To want to emanate its pulchritude…

Wishing all of you a very good weekend!

This is the end result of the photo below but I’ll give you the stages in two more photos and a little something to accompany it.

Wind blowing through the dunes
Disturbing the peace of winter’s
Settled sand combing the weeds
Sleek to its desire inviting the
Lovers of a wild coast at its best

Thank you for being patient ­čÖé

Peaking: A Big Wave Surfer’s Perspective – Carlos Burle – Part (2/6)


I loved the way this surfer philosophizes and describes his life, passion and fears. It is deep and meaningful. The waves and scenery are spectacular, the colors and movement couldn’t be captured on canvas as it’s forever changing… every split of a second… the essence of its beauty is the constant change through motion.
Enjoy it!

(2 Hour Nature Relaxation Video) A Day in Big Sur, California 1080p Relaxation Video Pure Nature


A quick post I could not resist of a video I just found, on mesmerizing sea waves in a spectacular nature spot this time, in California. (The last one was in the Carribeans)
It is one of the rare places of untouched and totally wild nature we have today… a pleasure to the eye.
I love the idea of being able to visit the world from our own home and be lulled into a state of blissful stupor ­čÖé

Enjoy it and take the time to indulge when things get too much for you or even when it doesn’t…. just for the fun of pampering yourself!

Those Relaxing Sounds of Waves, Tropical Beaches with Ocean Sounds, 1080p HD Video


Of all the videos I used when working on the laptop, studying, writing or simply in need of a holiday at home, this one is at the top of my list in quality.
The scenery changes fast enough so as not to be bored and are long enough to put you in deep relaxation if you watch it constantly.
At the end of the hour with the video finishing off with a sunset, you feel as loose and lazy as at the end of a full day on the beach.

I hope you’ll enjoy it and let me know the effect it had on you.

The Bloomberg Commission: Giuseppe Penone: Spazio di Luce (Tree artist)


I can’t believe the serendipity! Full swing into my tree project I run smack into the article of a cultural magazine on an artist I hadn’t heard of before, Giuseppe Penone, who’s art is all around trees ­čÖé
I then started to research on You tube for a video that meets the criteria of an interesting blog with a certain level of quality… The appropriate language… Short and stimulating so as to keep the attention of the viewers.
I came up with this and hope you’ll enjoy this unusual form of art.

Published on Sep 4, 2012
Over the past 45 years, Italian artist Giuseppe Penone has examined our relationship to nature. For the latest Bloomberg Commission, he has created a twelve metre bronze cast of a tree, with a radiant gold-leaf interior, which spreads across the columned Whitechapel Gallery.

Trees… The artistry of a master (Trees 1)

The next few posts will be dedicated to trees of all shape, in all places, tree-trunks, their purpose and our benefits by having them around us.
I have always been fascinated by the strength and energy that emanates from them and found my photo collection growing…
While selecting them for this project which I like to think of as a tribute to the trees around us, I realized Venice had hardly any trees (but many plants) something I hadn’t noticed on our short stay there.

A bulge, A rimple
The streaks of sap
The neat folds of a
Bird’s hiding place
Each one carved with
The accuracy and skill
Of a surgeon’s scalpel
With the artistry of…

A master.
