Sun Touched

Take nothing but pictures.
Leave nothing but footprints.
Kill nothing but time.
Motto of the Baltimore Grotto, a caving society


I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.
Elwyn Brooks White, Essays of E.B. White, 1977

Beautiful photos, highlighting an important day in our calendar. We live on a beautiful planet and it seems we are doing our best to ruin it. Let us hope that the next generation is wiser than ours.
