No life can be barren which hears the whisper of the wind in the woods
or the voice of the sea as it breaks on the shore.  
-- William Winter
The photographs on this page are from Norway: with its steep
mountains, deep fjords, colorful houses and translucent, almost
iridescent, light, Norway is a remarkably beautiful country.

Soon silence will have passed into legend.  We have turned our backs
silence.  Day after day, we invent machines and devices that increase

and beeping seem to bolster our egos. -- Jean Arp

Our forefathers had civilization inside themselves, the wild outside.  We live
in the civilization they created, but the wilderness still lingers.  What they

whispers of eternity.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature's peace will flow
into you; the winds will blow their freshness into you; the storms their
energy.  Cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  
-- John Muir
