I've always loved mountains but none as much as green mountains! I don't just love mountains but hills as well - combine mountains, hills and a perfect blue sky and I'm in paradise =) I feel that I am on a quest to find my perfect landscape, my perfect green hills that roll back into the distance and evolve into magnificent mountain peaks. When I lived in Lismore, Australia I was mesmerized by the endless rolling hills covered by beautiful carpet of green grass. I used to look out the bus window and as it glided up and down the sloping road, I breathed in the scenery and daydreamed of walking through the beautiful landscape. This is my first tribute to 'Green Mountains' veiled in my ideal sky.
