The Silence of the Land

I am always amazed how incredibly quiet it is while up on these upper elevations in the mountains, I find that I take for granted all the noises around me as I go about my daily life in the city,but while high in the mountains its so quiet, Its one of the things that I truly love about being in the mountains, I can hear my heart beat, my breathing and sometimes the sound of the wind or animals. I can understand why people who take spiritual quests often go to retreats high in the mountains.
This is an image from the Perley Rock trail in Glacier National Park ( Canada ), shot with my Tachihara 4 x 5 view camera and a 360mm lens.
