I am writing this blog to talk about why I see what I see and what moves me to capture it.

I don’t always go out with the intention of shooting everything I see. Sometimes…. actually most times when I head out with my camera I have a “idea” of what I want to capture.What I don’t have is control of what will happen when I arrive to my location. be it the sun,clouds,weather or even people. What I do have control of is MY PERSONAL VISION.

Often I like to walk off the beaten path or sit on a rock and “take it all in”. In doing this it puts me in the middle of my environment and at one with what I want to capture. Taking a Time Out with Nature and most of all MYSELF.

When I can have ZEN with nature I can create my masterpiece and share that magical “moment” with he viewer,

hence the word…
