This time of year when I have less light to work with at the end or start of the day (having a full time job that I enjoy sometimes gets in the way of photography!), I am reminded of how much time behind the camera is special for me in so many ways. Not only am I able to create my best images when I don’t have a schedule to keep, but the entire immersion is therapeutic and spiritual for me.
This image was taken at Promised Land State Park in Pennsylvania this autumn when Joe and I were able to take an entire day to wander the park at our own pace. It speaks to me of life and death, joyful transformation and the mysteries of life.
