Celebrating Earth Day

 ...along these mossy steps.

I made these photographs last summer when I was in Highlands, North Carolina and thought that today was the perfect day to share them.

At the time as I walked below the canopy of evergreens, I created a little project for myself...capturing the secret steps and woodland paths built from the indigenous materials of the mountain.

Granite steps, chiseled flat rocks, rustic railroad ties, tree limb hand rails...

...all lead me from one secret garden to another.

Mossy steps.

Steps that kept me wandering...

...and then I found this little bird cottage.

 Happy Earth Day.

Please honor our Earth and all that Mother Nature has given us.

Ciao amici,
