There is SO much beauty everywhere, and one of my favorite places to find it, is in reflections. It takes time, to slow down enough to find, and see, the really magical ones. (this image was taken, as the title suggests, on the road to Tofino, on Vancouver Island)

Although I’m a few days behind in my posts, for my 50th birthday iPhone Art and Photography project, I’ve taken way more than 50 photos since beginning on April 13th, 2011.

The challenge of the iPhone 3G camera, the challenge of finding something new each day to photograph that excites me or calms me, and the challenge in choosing daily, what might have meaning for you, has been an incredibly joyful process.

The image below comes from my forest walk this morning, and it is almost better than what I saw in the forest, yet at the same time, when I look at it, it’s almost as if it takes me back there again in a flash … but it also takes me to a new place that I’ve never been before. Fascinating. What do you see?

So, here is Number 23 of my 50 Photos 50 Years iPhone image project and lucky me, I live within minutes of this forest walk, and no matter how many times I walk it, it changes every day. When in the forest, what I see, what I feel, what I find and how I view it, changes daily. That’s what I love about nature. It’s just never the same.

Going to the same place, never reveals the same image, if you just look, and SEE.

Just East of Port Alberni on Vancouver Island, and on my way to Tofino and Ucluelet, which I frequent in spring and summer, is MacMillian Provincial Park, and in there, I know that you will be blown away by the beauty, the awe and serenity when you enter the magnificent old growth forest of Cathedral Grove, which some call, the “Doorstep to the Pacific Rim.”

I will be posting more photos after my next trip this coming weekend, but here’s a little glimpse into the green wonderland you can experience.

In this image, I really was focused not only on the green(ness) of it all, but on the composition of vertical lines, and how I could make them as interesting as possible. (I could spend days in there, doing just that, and next time, with tripod.)
