A Diamond in the Rough...






"When we long for life without difficulties, 
remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds
and diamonds are made under pressure."

  2. All the leaves are finally showing here, at last. I seem to notice that more now since taking up photography. Love this black-and-white image. It invites my imagination to fill in the colors.

  6. The photo makes me think of something I'd love to wear on a very special occasion. The quote came from someone very smart.

  9. I'm actually not too sure what kind of trees these are PerthDP...I'm guessing these are evergreens of some sort...they were in between Bishop and Mammoth and in full foliage at a time when the trees in Bishop were just budding...
