full frame black and white photo of an old forest. and a pathway or small clearing through the trees. the trees are sturdy and tall and stand in straight lines, the merest hints of branches only visible at the top of the frame. the entire image is diffused with light that weaves through the trees and settles on the land like perfume.

Lord, Sky
