The photo that is the banner located at the top of my blog page is one of my all-time favorites of my personal Mount Rainier photos. It’s quite intriguing and stirs the imagination. It is a symphony of nature’s elements playing to the sky: a cacophony of solids, water, and gas. One can compare it to the musical masterpieces of the world’s Great Classical Composers. “How can this be?” you may ask. “I hear no musical notes being played!”
Ahh…but there are notes being played! Notes floating through the air that land not on our auditory perceptors, but on our visual perceptors. And however one perceives the images before them, a different symphony is heard by each individual experiencing it. Have you ever heard someone describing a most beautiful place in nature that they visited and exclaimed that the beauty almost made them cry?
You see, the music of nature can play on our heartstrings much the same that a physically audible arrangement of music can. If you are emotionally stirred by a beautiful piece of music, chances are that you may be equally stirred by a snow covered, majestic mountain being entertained by curious shapes of clouds around its summit—or any other grandeur image in nature for that matter.
Next time you find yourself in a special place outdoors, take a moment to enjoy nature’s symphony. Observe the players and their parts they each play in its masterpiece!
