This photo was taken up in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. I tend to head to the woods and lakes to find a serene spot. In this case not only was I surrounded by the smells of the forest (it was Spring and the air was full of new growth mixed with earthiness left from the winter) but also the sounds of the forest (birds chirping, twigs snapping and brooks babbling). I went with a a friend and my son Pete that day. There wasn’t another human being around. It was magical to just be still and absorb it all in.
