In such a day, in September or October, Walden is a perfect forest mirror, set round with stones as precious to my eye as if fewer or rarer. Nothing so fair, so pure, and at the same time so large, as a lake, perchance, lies on the surface of the earth. Sky water. It needs no fence. Nations come and go without defiling it. It is a mirror which no stone can crack, whose quicksilver will never wear off, whose gilding Nature continually repairs; no storms, no dust, can dim its surface ever fresh; — a mirror in which all impurity presented to it sinks, swept and dusted by the sun's hazy brush — this the light dust-cloth — which retains no breath that is breathed on it, but sends its own to float as clouds high above its surface, and be reflected in its bosom still.

Walden (first published as Walden; or, Life in the Woods)
- by Henry David Thoreau

  1. Oh I like this one. So many layers make for a nice composition. This is suitable for framing indeed.

  2. Thoreau is perfect for these wonderful pictures. The bottom one looks very much like some of the Reflection photos that I have planned for next week's post. I think this post is excellent.
