As we live our busy lives, hurrying hither and thither, trying to squeeze a little more into each day; we’re unable to stop long enough to savor the visual beauty that is all around us. Photography has motivated me to take the time to see my world. It encourages me to look for new places to explore and to record what I see.

Leaving a nice warm bed before sunrise to take photographs requires effort. But as the sky lightens and the sun slowly pierces the horizon, everything is transformed. The landscape glows and I begin to discover exciting images. I am totally engrossed, trying to capture this beauty with my camera. My day has become enriched.
