Sacred Places

We are all familiar with these special or sacred places, where one feels – well – “at home”, might be the best description, though we all might find different words to describe them.

The three photos were taken at such an amazing place, in the southwestern part of Germany. There is a group of very old European Hornbeam (Carpinus Betulus) trees which form a ring around the top of a mountain peak called Häusleberg. It is approximately 1001 meters (3284ft) above sea level.

The circle of trees opens to the northwest and offers a dazzling view of a large valley from Kirchzarten to Freiburg. Sitting here at sunset gives one a sense of being protected by these magnificent trees, these ancient beings. I have always wondered: “how many people have they seen, how many scenes they must have observed over time? Human life seems so transitory in comparison.”
