Before I had studied Zen for thirty years, I saw mountains as mountains,
and waters as waters.
When I arrived at a more intimate knowledge, I came to the point
where I saw that mountains are not mountains,
and waters are not waters.
But now that I have got its very substance I am at rest.
For it's just that I see mountains once again as mountains,
and waters once again as waters.

Great image Shmuel! Red in the rocks and greenery is wonderful. It's easy to let your mind wander when having to choose which path to take.

Interesting...though I wonder if the greens might be a tad over-saturated. Nice lighting, color and very good textures.

Great rock wall & flower box. Those trees would act as a nice relief on a hot dry day.
Wonderful colours Shmuel.
