SOUND

"The three great elemental sounds in nature are
the sound of rain,

the sound of wind in a primeval wood,

and the sound of outer ocean on a beach."

And silence of snow falling onto a soft and quiet earth.

The first photo- I thought Oh Leenie painted that! but then there was the nose of a car and I just knew that you wouldn't include that- what a great shot! Have you ever watercolour painted in the rain? That would be interesting- no controll whatsoever!
Sound, yeah, just reading how the brain developes in babies who MUST hear sound to develop fully, then I wonder about all of the really smart folks I have known who were born deaf- they struggle with concepts sometimes ...

A soul stirring post. I really like the additional sounds left in your comments. Peace.

Beautiful post Leenie. That middle photo intruiges me - so different to our dry countryside. Luckily Tasmania and New Zealand are reasonably close.Strangely enough, the quietness that snow brings I have only experienced in the U.S. and not our Australian snowfields,visiting them off-season.

I've enjoyed all three of those this past week (although the wood was more of a little copse) and your post captures the beauty of it all perfectly!
