Far Reaching

The weather has not been co-operating very well so I've not gotten out with the girls to photograph much. As you might have guessed, I have a thing for trees, love to try and capture them in a way that makes you wonder what stories it would tell...

My family say I'm a story teller, and I think they may be right.  Everything I photograph speaks to me.  I may not always be aware of it's voice, but my instincts are to find the angle, the light, that split second when I can 'see' what the story might be.  I wonder is that how God felt while he shaped this world, breathing life and story into nature, into us.  I expect so.  I know that I seldom feel more connected to God and all that is around me than when I'm seeing it through the lens of my camera.

I can imagine how you look at the beauty you see in the lens of your camera and think of God in the images you collect.

You know I'm your biggest fan, and I've watched you beach combing taking in every small detail as you clambered over rocks to see what was just beyond view..
