We are walking in Epping Forest, England, on a sunny and warm late June day, when we come to one of the many ponds that we find scattered around the countryside.
This is not a formally sculptured lake, or a cozy backyard water feature, it is as natural a piece of water as one can find.
Everything seems serene and quiet, but at the same time the trees and reeds, the grasses and lily pads call out with exuberant life.
We are at the same time at peace and full of excitement, we feel a part of the whole, as still as the water, and as full of vitality as the trees

Not far from London, but seeming a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of that modern city life, is this Old Millhouse, somewhere in rural Essex, England.
An interesting setting, it speaks of industry, because this would once have housed a thriving business powered by the never-ending flow of water that could be harnessed to Man’s design. But what once would have been the height of modernity is now a relic of past times, and long gone industry.
The trees have grown and the building weathered, so that is now easy to imagine that the mill is actually part of nature; it has grown into the countryside that surrounds it.
But the river carries on regardless. It is unconcerned with the comings and goings of industry, with the habits of mankind. It continues to meander its way across the countryside, bringing fresh new life wherever it flows.
This image, with its mix of natural and man-made, suites itself particularly well to a formal room, hall or small office environment. Its feeling of history and renewal will provide an uplifting tone to any location.
