These words came to mind when I looked at this photo of me taken by a friend. In the vastness of space, we are but insignificant creatures living on a tiny planet in orbit around an average star in one corner of a galaxy amongst billions of galaxies!
The lake made famous by William Wordsworth, Lake Grasmere in the Lake District National Park is a mile long tranquil lake. I took this picture from a low perspective and attempted to capture the natural beauty of this place. In the distance, Allan Bank, a property managed by the National Trust can be seen. A small island in the middle of the lake was Wordsworth’s favourite destination while he was staying at nearby Dove Cottage. Click on the picture for more viewing options.

Humans have this infinite capacity that creates monsters out of every day objects. Children show this the most and reflect their inner fears in shadows and other inanimate items. Would you care to find your monster from this photo of a fountain?
