Travel for the Soul – The Great Outdoors

There will be times when you will be in the field without a camera.  And, you will see the most glorious sunset or the most beautiful scene that you have ever witnessed.  Don’t be bitter because you can’t record it.  Sit down, drink it in, and enjoy it for what it is!

(But even if you have that camera, put it down and make sure to take it in with the naked eye.  : )

For me, the waiting is a time of preparation, a time of centering, a time of allowing the expected and the unexpected to manifest, and above all, a time of stillness.

  1. FABULOUS SHOTS by both of you! Looks like Lauren has learned a lot from her mom’s photography expertise. Can’t wait to see more…

  2. Very, very true. Sometimes we get so caught up in getting the perfect picture, we forget to look at and appreciate the bigger picture. And love, love, love the one of Dale, but where was Chip?

  3. Those are absolutely beautiful photos. Thank you so much for sharing them. I especially like your reflective pose as you gaze at the waterful. I have been to that national park, but in the winter time and always during ski season. Sometimes it reminded me of the wilds of Alaska.
    Your words are so very correct, as well. We don’t always have a camera with us when the most magnificent scene of a lifetime suddenly appears. I have trained my mind throughout the years to freeze certain extraordinary shots of my experiences and I find that as I get older, I am able to bring those photographs into my consciousness and relish every single moment of the past. I also add my feelings, aromas, even the words that were said by me or my friends at that particular moment, to those photographs. My memories have been a sort of human photo album that I pull out every so often when I reflect on the good times. They have helped me through some very dark moments.
