Kieran Forster (aka Algernon Eldritch)

Those of you that read this blog know that I return to lakes again and again. Is it just another place to take photograghs? Maybe.



In reality, I travel to lakes again and again because for me they represent all I feel alienated from, living in the city. It’s not just living in the city. It is all the associated dysfunctionalities of living a city life, despite the obvious positives of life in a city.  I believe there is a deeper part of the human psyche that longs for the solitude of nature, the non-human intelligence that seems present in the bush and the profound beauty of the water meeting the sky around a lake. There is something that cleanses you from the pent-up stresses, trivialities and annoyances of city life. This is just touching on what I could write about being in the forest or on a lake. Photographs say so much more. There is a sacred silence.

  1. Agreed……Spending time in natures embrace provides a calming reassurance that we are part of something really wonderful which is a great comfort. Being in nature is healing, restorative and brings an internal peace that erases your worries and returns you to a place of peace and solace, even if it’s only for a little while. Yup, mother nature is the absolute best medicine for mind, body and soul.
