I just love the way trees look when you look up! This was taken on a very windy and overcast day an island in Thailand (Koh Tao). We were there during monsoon season, so it rained for at least an hour every day and it was about that time. We were almost back to our bungalow and I remember being surrounded by palm trees. It was really quiet except for the wind rushing through the palm branches. The ocean wasn't far away either, so you could hear it roaring in a distance due to the rain that was coming. 

It was pretty awesome. Living in a city filled with many people and lots of sounds, it was refreshing to be in a quiet place at that moment. 

It's interesting because I love big cities. I love all the sights, sounds, smells, etc. I love the liveliness of the streets and the different people who are surrounding me. It's a blast! However, there are times when the stillness of a place can literally stop me in my tracks and make me take in what I'm seeing. I appreciate those times!
