A way for the peace is beautifully done throughout and aptly named!

The artists' vision comes at a time when the world is more restless than it has been in decades, and the thoughts of many are on peace. Many are wondering if peace is possible. The artist believes so, and becons us to raise our eyes above our world to something higher.

While this is no original thought, preached and pondered for ages, it seems long forgotten and cuts against the current grain of our wooden heads, becoming fresh again as the snow. And while trees have been the photographer's muse and poet's motiff as long as either have been around, this photo stands out in the forest as strikingly unique.

The average photographer attempts with his equipment and his skill to capture the photo as it meets the eye as best he can. The artist uses the same to reveal what meets the soul. The artist here has done just that. Everything from the frame, the choice of lens, and a touch of post-edit transforms an ordinary photograph of a tree lined lane into a winter cathedral.

The trees become higher beings, not only reaching upward, but leaning in unison throughout the scene. The staggered trees along the lane resemble so many pipes in a cathedral organ. And even the lane seems to climb and vanish in a higher place than we are. We are called to this place.

For some, it may be God or heaven. For others love or wisdom. But in all cases, it is a higher, nobler plane than that which occupies our worried minds. But it is not unattainable, and those that know the way unanimously insist that we walk the path.
