Nature can sometimes be so intimidating. Like that one time I was in Switzerland. I stood there in awe. For no apparent reason, I started to cry while admiring the breathtaking snowcapped mountains. Or that other time I was in this beautiful lagoon in my hometown. I was so happy watching small fishes circle me around, while I took their lovely pictures.

Yes, nature can be so beautiful. It can take our breath away. It is so pure, we think it's something sacred, and we don´t want to disturb & spoil it.

I remember our mountaineers´oath back in college. We say, take nothing but pictures; leave nothing but footsteps. And my funny mountaineering friend added something. He said, make nothing but babies. LOL

I guess, there will always be this nature lover in me. So last Sunday, my husband and I went for a long walk in the `forest´. Here are some of the photos I took.

mushrooms.... they remind me of Gulliver's Travels.

or these butterflies, of Tinker Bell and Never Land.

Somebody said that man can make a poem, but only God can make a tree.
Nature is the best evidence that God does exist.

I am a nature lover too. Everytime I see a blooming flower, a rushing river, flying birds,or a newly-born infant, I cannot help but be awed. These may be just ordinary things to others, but to me, it's a testimony to the powers that only God has.

I blogged about it (Kilmer's poem about TREES). `Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree.´
