I purchased my first DSLR in 2008 and told myself I would learn to use my camera like a photographer would. So my journey began and has been a wonderful and rewarding journey of learning and learning. It is pure love for the beauty of nature that drives me to become better. I thank all those wonderful photographers who don't even know their work inspired me to learn.
I have seen the world through the pictures of many photographers from around the world. Places I would have never seen if not for their photos. I will never journey to all the places I have seen but I have seen them because of photographers who love the beauty of nature as I do.
I can't really find the words to express my intense love for the beauty of nature and how grand and wonderful it is to capture moments of her beauty.
Natures beauty is like a song that fills the heart, the soul and the mind with peace and calm. Her songs renew, inspire and heals the mind, body and spirit. Nature is music, her tones are shades of color, shades of light and shades of shadows. Her songs are trees, flowers, water, sky, land, and more.
"May there be good health and healing for this Earth,
May there be Beauty above me, May there be Beauty below me,
May there be Beauty in me, May there be Beauty all around me.
I ask that this world be filled with Peace, Love, and Beauty."
From a Native American Prayer - Titled, Mother Earth Prayer
