Elemental wildness

“What is wild cannot be bought or sold, borrowed or copied.
It is.
Unmistakeable, unforgettable, unshamable, elemental as earth and ice, water, fire and air, a quintessence, pure spirit, resolving into no constituents.
Don’t waste your wildness: it is precious and necessary.”
~ Jay Griffiths

As a general rule I tend to post my outdoor images to correspond with the time of year that they were taken. So summer pictures get posted during the summer months etc. I often hang onto you images and will post my favourite but then the following summer I will post another one of two from that series.

This time of year, well I have definitely been known to take outdoor shots in January but usually towards to the very end of the month when the snowdrops call to me.

This year, and well last year too I didn’t take as many outdoor shots as I usually do because I found that lockdown and people wanting to be outdoors more even when places where open resulted in me having to share many of my favourite spots with other people who had discovered them. I was not best pleased to find my usually deserted woods over run with families, runner and even cyclists.

Related; If you go out for a walk or to ride your bike, or have a picnic. Please for the love of all things wild take you damn litter home with you. I have picked up more litter this year than I have in all the other years combined.

Anyway, back to the topic. This weeks image choice is inspired by Exposing 40 who recently shared to two lovely summer images as her Sinful Sunday posts. Both of them lifted my mood a. So I decided to do something similar and reach back into Autumn and share a picture that makes me happy and think of warm Autumn days, crisp leaves gathering under foot and a cascade of fall colours clinging to the trees overhead. There is elemental wildness to Autumn that always stirs something in me and has me reaching for my camera and shedding my clothes. This was a good day. There will be more again soon.

Gorgeous Molly … love the colours !!!
And, totally agree with you about more people out in the woods than ever before. We were out on our Sunday walk this morning and struggled to find any of our “normal” quiet spots. (Did eventually manage to achieve our goal though! LOL !!!)
