This image is the reason I love photography... The world is so inexplicably beautiful, and we are here for such a short time. As photographers we revel in capturing our personal journey and trying to define ourselves creatively. Hands up those among us who sit gazing out of the office window, self-abosrbed and lost in though, dreaming of escape, planning an adventure with our camera? We have all done it! Mother nature is nothing short of spectacular and will reveal beauty to those willing to seek it out.


I need to take more photos... I am not going to sit inside and think about taking photos or talk about photography. I want to be stood out in the fresh air, watching the storm roll in as the sky lights up and the waves crash against the rocks...
