My prayer is for peace and harmony among the nations of our small planet .
l took this photo in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, while walking along a famous road called the Blue Ridge Parkway .
The sun was just rising and shining through the trees.
The location is in Luxembourg, very close to the border with France. There is a nursery school there, right in the heart of the forest, and my daughter spent a very happy year there.
This is at the bottom of the hill leading up to the forest creche that Freya went to in Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg. I miss that place. Some of my fondest memories are of taking Freya to and bringing her home from the forest creche. It was a handy spot for dawdling with my Nikon as well. I spent a lot of time around this area experimenting and learning.
I'd be interested to see what sort of results one could get with this shot in Photoshop. I'm a PS n00b and tend to use only Lightroom (which I love and am okay with, at least v1 anyway!)
The photo was taken in the summer of 2006 in the Tongess National Forest in Juneau, Alaska. This is a temperate rain forest.

The view is to the west from a high point in Winterfold Forest that is located on a sandstone ridge running through the centre of the county of Surrey in the south of England. The area is a protected area and is designated in UK and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This area is known as the Surrey Hills.
To the south of these hills is a wide area of lower land known as The Weald and it extends into the county of West Sussex before it meets the chalk hills of the South Downs that run from east to west a few miles north of the coast. The point from which I took the photograph is just to the north of a town called Cranleigh which should easily be found on a map of the UK or in Google Earth.
I am extremely fortunate to live in this beautiful area and I walk in the forest almost every days with my wife and my dog called Robbie.
We have a small bed and breakfast business at www.gardenroom.org.uk
The google Earth GPS reference for this area is 51 degrees 10' 33.84" N and 0 degrees 28' 21.98"w where you will find another picture of this forest area with my dog. You will see from the Google map that this area is very heavily forested.
Spotted this ice covered river during a walk through the forest on New Year's Day. The light falling through the leaves looked very intriguing, so I took some photos.
Happy New Year everybody, and thanks to all followers and friends for your visits and comments.
