I love nature and spending time in it. I love how taking photographs keeps me in the present moment. I love where photography takes me - the trails, vistas, mountains, valleys, back roads, and into the macro world where I see details I don't notice with my naked eye. I also enjoy traveling and seeing new places and things and capturing them with my camera. This, and what the quotes below speak to, is why I love photography.
