Under the Palm

on

I took this simply because I love to stand under trees.  It reminds me how life can have so many different perspectives.  Imagine what it would be like to take a picture of this tree from the top.  That would certainly create a different image, wouldn’t it?

When I lived in northern California, I lived in a place that had lots of very tall redwood trees, which are just beautiful, by the way.  There was a stand of three trees with an opening just large enough for a person to walk inside, so I did.  And the most amazing thing happened.  There was complete silence once I entered into that space.  As I looked up I couldn’t believe the feeling I got. I still remember the feeling of complete peace and serenity.  I felt so protected and completely safe.  Did that stand of trees create some kind of vortex?  Maybe. Maybe it was a sacred space.  One designed by mother nature to cradle us for a short time.  A respite from the crazy hustle and bustle of everyday life; the perfect place to meditate.

The photo below is one I found that looks very similar to “my” redwood trees. Namaste.

    This is so nice Gina. When I was in Bora Bora I saw a guy scale a huge palm in about 10 seconds flat. Next time I am there I shall give him my camera to get the perspective from top down.

    1. Ok, I’ll look forward to that for sure. 10 seconds flat, eh? Are you sure he wasn’t a life-sized gecko?

  4. I love that perspective, too. I have so many shots that way. If I could fly, I’d be doing top down, too. 🙂
