. This was taken at the Zen Mountain Monastery. The Zen pigeon beside the crucified feet of Christ. It's quite ironic but according to the ancient Chinese, the site of this humble abode in my little world, at the convergence of two rivers, with a mountain to the north, is an auspicious place for spiritual practice. Designated by the Monastery as a nature sanctuary, to remain “forever wild,” the property comprises woods and meadows, riverside marshes, cliffs, streams, and pond, all home to an extraordinary variety of plant and animal life. It was crafted with bluestone quarried from nearby cliffs and pillars of white oak cut from the hillsides. Yet, the Monastery’s Main House was built between 1929 to 1936 by a Catholic priest and Norwegian craftspeople which is one reason why a large statue of Jesus is honored on the side of the dwelling. . . #zen #nature #naturephotography #landscape #photography #landscapephotography #photographer #photoshoot #photooftheday #picoftheday #pictureoftheday #art #arts #artist #artwork #travel #traveling #travelgram #igtravel #instalike #instamood #instagood #vintage #german #russian #photo #bnw #igersbnw #peace #shots
