Talking with some of the people at the national park was interesting, because they don't call it "The Pando Forest" they simply call it "Pando" it doesn't have a plural name, it has a singular name because it's a singular entity. I also want to go back in the fall when all the leaves turn, get more colorful shots :)


Everything here was shot on the Sony NEX 5R.

Narration starts at 1:13


Give me all the Darkest Nights:


 


Give me Darkness so I can close 


my eyes forever,


swallowed up in the black 


embrace of night.


Silent, not stirring enfolding light 


with hollow gloom.


 


Give me darkness to embrace


the monsters in my dreams.


Give me shadowy hallways and staircases


from my childhood.


Crouching and giggling from


under the table, unseen, and 


invisible.


 


Give me darkness from moonless nights


and starry skies


when flickering campfires


hurt my eyes.


Haunting breathless dark sides


of the moon make a hole


in the empyrean.


 


Give me the darkest nights 


that make wide my eyes


when pitch crawls


and wings fly


wrapped in the cold embrace


where time and space


are all equal.


 


Give me ocean depths


of crushing tide


that abide with 


the dammed 


that cast the shadows


which play on ruins


of decay.


 


Black, murk, and gloom


spreading to every corner


filling the whole earth 


with senses of doom


until dawn breaks.

Tried to do this one as though the Host itself is merely an outside observer with no emotional attachments to the unfolding events.

The story behind this photo:


I always wanted to take a breathtaking landscape photo, one afternoon I was out scouting locations and came upon this place. I concluded that it was perfect for what I wanted and returned later that evening, just before sunset. The photo was taken from an island that sits amidst a lake. It being winter, the lake was frozen over. As I looked around, daylight slowly fading, I concluded that in order to get the best possible shot, I would need to walk across the lake. I set out, my tentative footsteps crunching the hard snow. About 50 yards out I suddenly heard a series of deep cracks, which sounded almost like underwater gunshots. I felt the ice shift beneath my feet ever so slightly. I froze, not wanting to aggravate the lake any further. There was silence for a little while and I set out again. I came to the island and traversed to the top of it's highest point. I got my picture with time to spare.

Hickory Dickory Dock,


Two mice ran up the clock.


The clock struck one


And the other escaped with minor injuries.
