To put nature and light into the camera, I roamed around mountain, field, and ocean, and found a special quality in each subject.
The purity of the dawn sky, the solemnity of the ocean, the soft formality of orchids, sand washed clean by the tides, even the desolate hills. All of these things continually change with the changing light, and offer surprising beauty.
I am overcome with gratitude that the light illuminates even me – ordinary as I am – so that I can see this world. I take photographs to put new beauty into my mind and into my camera, starting from this grateful and humble place.
