Incredible picture! Are they still places like that, left?
What a beauty this world would be without cars, concrete, highways and smoke!
Lots of open unused space up here in Northern Canada. :)
Great shot! Happy Earth day to you guys as well.
Recilone… and in that scenario, there would be no bikes either.
Maybe something more like:
What a beauty this world would be with fewer cars, less concrete, fewer highways and a lot less smoke!
AND a lot more bicycles!!
“Incredible picture! Are they still places like that, left?”
There’s beauty all around us if we slow down and take a closer look. The above scene is only one small rise away from a busy 50mph thoroughfare. No one in the cars driving by was able to experience it, and if I was in a rush I would have ridden right by, even on my bicycle. The challenge, I think, is to avoid falling complacent and riding/driving right past the beautiful vignettes that are right under our noses everyday.
PS – I’m glad you enjoyed the photo. And, thanks for the kind words…
