Poems of the Ancients by MaciejKarcz Poems of the Ancients by MaciejKarcz
Winter - in the eleventh month
Snow falls thick and fast.
A thousand mountains, one color.
Men of this world passing this way are few.
Dense grass conceals the door.
All night in silence, a few woodchips burn slowly
As I read the poems of the ancients.

-- Ryokan, 18th Century, C.E.

A warm sunset at a smelly pond.
Cleaned it up a little, not the pond, only the photo.

Nikon D200
Sigma 10-20mm EX HSM lens
Hitech Grad ND filter
5 exposures
