  • What an amazing place, when you have a sighting, more than likely you are alone at the sighting. Amazing birding spot and the animals.....
  • One of the things I love most about spending time in wild places ⁠is often the moments before a photograph is taken, especially with landscape photography. ⁠ ⁠ When you are waiting for the sun to set or the right light, you are given time to pause and reflect. To take a step back from thinking analytically about all of the technical elements of a photograph. For me, I think taking these breaks result in a better images, at least to me, because I take the time to feel that ineffable the "thing" I'm trying to capture in that scene. ⁠ ⁠ Thinking about some of those moments fills me with gratitude and now the excitement that comes with the prospect of getting back on the road again! 🌅
