Photo Challenge: Depth

I saw the Daily Post’s Photo Challenge last Friday.  Ben Huberman asks us to show what we think, visually and/or emotionally, is Depth.

Here’s a photo I took of my hubby walking along the Purisima Redwood Trail at the open space preserve, last January, to commemorate our 31st anniversary.

Walking the trails at Purissima Open Space Preserve near Half Moon Bay on January 7, 2015. This is a Panoramic shot I took with my iPhone 5S. I'm sure a more powerful camera could capture the beauty of the place. But, the phone is convenient and handy. Photo Credit (c) Likeitiz

It’s hard to capture the depth of the beauty all around this place. I’m sure a video at different elevations would do a better job. I can only hope to memorialize how great a morning this was.

The theme also reminds me of the verse from Elizabeth Barrett Browning:s famous poem:

…I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace…

Is there such a thing as an earworm for poems? If there is, well, I had it. I kept saying the verse in my head all weekend. I figured I needed to finish the poem by looking for the complete verse or else it would continue going around and around in my head for a long time.

Note: If you click the link “Depth” it will take you to the challenge. You might find some other interpretations that might interest you!

Here are some of the ones I liked:

    oh yes, I a;leo believe there are ear worms for poetry lines – and nice connection here – and the back light in that pano shot was nice. in fact, it was just great to see a panorama shot – it brought me back to 1995 when my nephew visited me in CO and we bought a pano disposable camera and it was a special part of the photos he took him.

    nice take on the wpc ❤

  4. Your picture is stunning. You captured the moment and the depth of that space. I used to lament over my laziness at always forgetting to take my heavy dslr when I go places. Then a professional photographer told me that some of his best shots were taken with him smartphone. After that I relaxed. It’s not the camera, it’s the moment, and you nailed it. Happy Anniversary! 💖 I miss those days of regularly visiting everyone. Thank you for the pingback. 🙂
