Wanderer Above a Sea of Mist — Caspar David Friedrich

 

“Stand on the peak of a mountain, contemplate the long ranges of hills. . .and all the other glories offered to your view, and what feeling seizes you?  It is a quiet prayer, you loose yourself in boundless space, your self disappears, you are nothing, God is everything.”  — Carl Gustav Carus

Don’t think I can add much more to that.

Take care.
