A pathway is created by the linear connection of points. Terrestrial constellations. The cyclical nature of the path insures it will never be exactly the same, and in time, it will disappear, reappear, and disappear again. This is a direct result of seasonal changes that are predictable, yet inexorably different.
The relationship of the filtered view, regardless of intent is linked to the season. The season, in an uncontrolled environment, dictates to a certain extent, how the image will look. This direction is so benign, so omnipresent, that it is regarded as a canvas, or paper, or something that just is, and will be. This can be filled, or stripped bare, or enhanced, or any myriad of possible permutations can be applied. It is still there.
