"Ecology and spirituality are fundamentally connected, because deep ecological awareness, ultimately, is spiritual awareness."

This tree trunk is near horizontal, and the cracks or furrows in the thick bark serve as small ledges where green moss and a small amount of white lichen have grown. At Riley Park in northwest Calgary.

Vine Street Expressway
The street lights around the Vine Street Expressway onramp at 21st St are favorite perches from which the Parkway hawks scan the rodent-rich scrubby verges of the crosstown highway. The field of road ecology, which studies the ecology of transportation infrastructure, was founded by R.T.T. Forman around the turn of the century.

5 exposures of +2, +1, 0, -1 and -2 made up this HDR image.
Used autobracket feature of Nikon D200 (can go up to 9 exposures in one burst).
The HDR treatment I used here is to reveal a realistic image rather than my usual artistic HDR style. Some HDR afficionados call it True Tone HDR or TTHDR for short.
Hope you like it.
Two extremely good and necessary books on environment and strategies for the protection of life and future. Very competent and well researched and vittingly written. Good - though frightening - reads!
For Swedish readers:
På grund av Miljöpartiets debacle har dessvärre också miljöfrågorna hamnat i bakvattnet. Men de är i själva verket viktigare än någonsin och alla partier borde enas om att hetta upp frågan och göra den angelägen igen.
Två bra böcker kan hjälpa till. Den ena av dem finns ännu inte på svenska men den till höger - Dave Goulsons - finns. Då heter den Galen i insekter men handlar varken om galenskap eller bara om insekter utan om vår globala miljö i stort om det hot den står inför. Lånen och läsen!
With almost all the Chum Salmon dead by now, a few late arrivals begin their final act.

This is the skeletal remains of a wild swine or Sus scrofa. My family and I spotted this while out hiking near Whiperwill Camp in Richlands, NC. Swine are not native to the U.S. and are now considered an invasive species. They are foragers and will destroy crops and native plants by uprooting them, kill young animals, including livestock, and will mess up streams. They also carry zoonotic diseases that can be spread to both livestock and people. It’s hard to tell what exactly killed the pig, but evidence of scavengers was present. The upper body was scattered and both forelegs appeared to be missing. Sources: www.coastalreview.org/2016/04/14102/. www.ncwildlife.org/Learning/Species/Mammals/Feral-Swine.

This was taken from a moving train in the Central Valley of California. I like the contrast of the old windmill being overshadowed by the new generation win turbines.

on a project with architecture practice Studio Weave (alongside Artlands, Dartford Council and Arts Council England), which has finally come to fruition in the form of a beautiful building sited at ‘Ecology Island’ in Dartford’s Central Park.
With woodstain and with lots of wonderful volunteers, we spent a week of the summer in a church hall in Dartford handpainting beautiful cedar timbers with William’s geometric design. This is the biggest project we’ve done to date, in terms of physical size, and an interesting new context for our work to sit in.
Although we were familiar with the plans and the 3D projections of the huilding, it really was amazing and totally surprising to see it actually built. It’s been great to work with Je and Maria from Studio Weave, and also with Fiona who co-ordinated the whole project. Thanks to all the volunteers and especially to Kelvin and Chris.
The building will function as a project space, housing workshops and community activities over the next three years. Have a look at the Artlands website for what’s on.

urban predation = urban ecology
Granville Street, Vancouver, British Columbia
---Often, when we read, we come across a voice that resonates with us at a certain period in the story of our life. History, some argue, are the moments of human activity, with all their emotional experiences and contingency [perhaps if it wasn't raining that day at the barricades, the 1919 German Revolution might have birthed a Soviet Germany rather than a Wiemar Republic], that builds up to create certain events that affect the world in profound and life-altering ways. We are living in one of those historical moments.--
