Footprints

How many times have I told my Hubby when in a pristine location.  Don’t put any footprints on the ground!!    The last thing you want in a photo is footprints destroying a natural location, pristine and wild,  or do you……………….?

Of course I was referring to refraining from leaving human footprints.

Animal footprints are a whole different story.  A sign of life, intrigue and excitement flood my mind when we come across tracks left by the locals.

Footprints or pug marks provide a sense of wonder and awe, of how these creatures survive in the elements and live their lives.  This fills my soul with a sense of wonderment.

Soft padded strides in-tune with the earth.  

Purposeful, surefooted, aloof and with stealth precision they imprint on the land.  Leaving an everlasting statement of survival in this at times, harsh world.
