Statement from the artist:

My intention is to capture images that elicit emotion, for what we feel and see endears us to the beauty of nature and we move to protect it.

I think of my camera as the tool that connects me in intimate ways to my world giving me the opportunity to capture a moment of time. It is much like a runner “in the zone” and it often allows me to experience the deep sense of Oneness that is.  My focus is on nature, the awe and wonder of it all and humanity experiencing life.  I have come to know that the experience is more important than the photography.  My spiritual practice is to just be present and ready for what shows up.  More often than not I am overwhelmed by the beauty that I witness, and then all there is say is “thank you”.

Back at my computer my first goal is to find the image that clearly expresses the emotional impact I felt at the moment.  The second is to display the photography in a way that will allow others to share in the beauty I’ve experienced. I am so grateful for the teaching and the community of the Center for Spiritual Living.
