The Undiscovered Country, Pages 20 & 21

I'm off to Yosemite and then Southern Utah. While I'm away I'll share images and poetry from my book, The Undiscovered Country. Enjoy!

From Song of the Open Road, Walt Whitman

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.

The earth, that is sufficient,
I do not want the constellations any nearer,
I know they are very well where they are,
I know they suffice for those who belong to them.

(Still here I carry my old delicious burdens,
I carry them, men and women, I carry them with me wherever I go,
I swear it is impossible for me to get rid of them,
I am fill'd with them, and I will fill them in return.)

Fantastic! I wish there were less trees on the right side of the picture so that there'd be perfect symmetry. But still, this shot is fantastic. The colors and the tones in the picture are excellent. The patches of uneven light falling on the ground makes it dramatic. Nice shot sir!

A dramatic piece of countryside. Very interesting, your contrast of the almost rust colored ground with the pale blue sky !!!
