This series of images shares my experience of visits, over two years, to a mature planted forest of white pine. Through meditation and through the eye of my camera, I began to pay attention to varying aspects of this grove. Over time, my awareness deepened, eventually transforming into a sense of entering a sacred space, a cathedral of living-and-dying trees. Soon, on my trips there I experienced a slowing down as I approached the grove, and with measured steps, would enter my cathedral. The resulting images range from close-ups of morning dew drops on the needles, images of myself among the trees, and impressions, through camera motion, of the energy of growing and dying trees.
A series of 50 images have been produced into a slide-music show, which hopefully will impress viewers with the potential for greater awareness of the sacred in our environment.
