Slice of Heaven :: CT

I have the feeling that most photographers will be able to relate to this: I’ve shot this location dozens of times, and never walked away with a photo I liked until now. The frustration and subsequent feeling of triumph IS REAL.

Two of the biggest skills a landscape photographer needs is patience and perseverance. In the end, they’ll pay off.

I keep telling myself I’m not just a waterfall photographer.. but here we are. lol

It’s hard to tell the scale of this waterfall, but by east coast standards, its actually pretty big. And messy. And beautiful. Just like life.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year! ❤

“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.” – John Muir

Another one from the archives. It was a beautiful, foggy sunrise and after I’d taken my grand landscape shots, we wandered a bit to see if anything caught our eyes. The dog was happy just to sniff around while I took photos of this and that.

Suddenly, the dog’s ears perked up and my other half called over to me. “Did you hear that?”

Do photographers EVER hear things when they’re lost in their creative flow? The obvious answer was no.

But, he swore up and down that he caught a glimpse of something BIG in the woods near the pond. And being in moose and bear territory, we decided it was time to shove off.

At least I got this photo. 🙂

Pandemics make travel difficult, obviously, so I’ve been going through my archives looking at shots I either never edited, or didn’t *like* the edit on at the time. I actually can’t remember if I released this before. But if I did, I know I wasn’t happy with it. Finicky perfectionist artists, amiright?

Anyway, today I sat down to edit and felt excited as the image took shape. So, now I present to you…maybe again…a photo of boats!

When I was younger, I used to think that adults had it all figured out.  Now, I’m certain that adulting is a mix of taking guesses and muddling through the situations you find yourself in.  Going with the flow, if you will.

This shot was taken in Oregon, on the way to Tamanawas Falls.  It was a dang lovey hike, and the perfect way to start my visit to the Mt. Hood area.
