I purchased my first DSLR in 2008 and told myself I would learn to use my camera like a professional photographer. I chose to self teach and so my journey began, which has been a wonderful and rewarding journey of learning and learning. It is pure love for the beauty of nature that drives me to become better. I thank all those wonderful photographers who don't even know their work inspired me to learn. Still learning always learning and loving every moment because it draws me closer to nature
I can't really find the words to express my intense love for the beauty of nature and how grand and wonderful it is to capture her beauty so I chose to share the words of William Hazlitt. "We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts" A deeper meaning to his thoughts is; The first way we see nature is with our eyes. Then, we must take it deeper into ourselves. It becomes a part of our very thoughts and our very being. When you connect with nature, you open a path to your heart. That relationship becomes vital to you like any other relationship in life. For me landscape photography has become a vital relationship of love and the constant awe of nature's symphonic beauty.
