When given a choice I would rather be behind the camera and seeing the world from that viewpoint any day of the year! I can pick and choose the view, I can distort the reality to be anything I want it to be….I am finding myself through the lens of the camera. I am not as talented with this as my husband is yet, but I am blessed with a great sense of artistic composition and I can see something beautiful in the oddest of places.
This tree sits on top of a cliff along side a major highway. I kept looking at it all winter long, thinking that is the loneliest tree I have ever seen, but when I got up there to take the picture I changed my mind…it is the protector of the fields and valleys below. Ever-watching, a sentinel of sorts….I believe my mother is correct….God lives in the trees!
I hope you enjoy seeing my journey through photography as much as I enjoy taking it.
