Nature is a wonderful stress reliever for me. At the time, I was doing computer support in a very demanding, high-stress, scientific research environment – and needed to get away from the pressure cooker atmosphere that I worked in, so each lunch break I would go for a brief photo walk on the campus grounds and get recharged for the afternoon hours. This is one of many photos from that period.
