The Path of Light
When trying to produce images, I have heard the complaints of others and experienced moments of disappointment when conditions weren’t what we hoped for. I’m relating to those dawns when clear blue skies predominated, when fog obscured the rising sun obliterating all golden light, when rain tipped the balance of staying in bed rather photographing. Since photography is a hobby, I believe it is important to have an ethos which reflects positivity in order to maintain the elements of interest and fun. With that in mind, I developed a brief analogy to appreciate the good and enjoy the ‘bad’ times!
We all take steps toward reaching a mythical goal of photographic perfection. Along this winding journey, light helps us find our way through moments of cantering or crawling to journey’s end, and so……..
When there is ‘no’ light, we create a path of our own…
When light gives us an inch, we stretch that inch into a mile…
When light gives us a mile, we take that mile with gratitude.
Closer to home there aren’t the glaciers of Patagonia, the geothermal landscapes of Iceland, the alpine beauty of New Zealand nor the majesty of the Himalayas. However, these images represent the beauty of South Australia, our home where we have taken more steps along our photographic journey than anywhere else in this beautiful world 🙂
Cheers to staying positive !
