Define this with an image

If this is too far off topic please say so.

This is a quote from Henry Thoreau I got from a book: "In nature is the preservation of the world" published by Sierra club in the late 1960's a photo essay with photos from Elliott Porter, still one of my favorite "intimate" landscape photographers.

"Ah if I could put into words that music that I hear—that music which can bring tears to the eyes of marble statues! To which the very muscles of men are obedient"

While searching for the quote I found this:

What image fits this for you? Can be your image or one you've become attached to from another source.

I personally find myself literally in a symphony when I walk in nature.  Sometimes "there is no there there" everything melds to together; harmony and melody intertwined and truly exceeds my abilities to describe it.

p.s. I'm in Florence, Italy right now and internet is a bit of a challenge.
