It is these moments that I long for. The perfect serenity and joy of nature. A moment when time comes to a standstill and you forget everything but the present.
I love that photography works to pull me towards these moments. It's a reason and a purpose to be out––not that we need one to experience and enjoy nature––but it adds a layer to the reason for exploring: to capture what I discover and to share what I cherish. This evening I felt all of that in full. I was so at peace and yet so brimming with unabashed delight over everything around me: the splendor of natural landscapes and being able to share that with friends I hold dear!
