    I love watching the blue fade from light to cobalt. Seeing the fish jump. Hearing the quiet and distant howl of wind across the peaks.

    Reverent in the silence, I am so very glad to be blessed with moments such as these where the love of life and all that we get to see and share and experience courses through me and makes me able to endure all the doubt and stuff that can bog one down in the day to day...

    This makes it all worth it. This is happiness.

      Are you standing in the water in leather boots? Good luck getting them back on. Nice blues by the way.

      Wonderful image. Whenever I try to get a long exposure self portrait I inevitably move slightly and introduce a bit of a blur.

      Well done.

      The silhouetted dark reflections on the water surface remind me of those of a skyline.The water around your boots seem to offer resistance, like viscous liquids do. The pavement in the foreground looks like an alien element here at the national park. Yes, it looks like a dream scenario.

      Ara I just took a whirlwind tour through your Wedding photography and you amaze me how far you have come in the last couple years... you made the right choice and put your heart into your work!
