Winter Camp

The man who has seen the rising moon break out of the clouds at midnight has been present like an archangel at the creation of light and of the world.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Winter Camp
Gale F. Trapp, 2013

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
— Henry David Thoreau

  1. I think I like Thoreau one hell of a lot better than I like Emerson, generally. When Thoreau was in jail for protesting the Mexican War Emerson came to see him. Through the bars, “What are you doing in there?” Thoreau shook his head and grinned. “What are you doing out there, Emerson?”

    Nice work on the winter camp. Emerson and Thoreau both would have been in a quandry about the guards trying to run them off the government land, I reckons. Jack

  2. I stumbled on your blog and browsed around: beautiful. An this scene particularly speaks to me. You have captured the magic of a winter night so well! Thank you for sharing and I look forward to follow you and see more of you work.

    • Thanks. Into the Wild was an interesting tale. I’ve spent much of my life fascinated by the stories of mountain men and early western explorers. Amazing men of courage and strength of character.

Make my day... tell me what you think!
