Story Behind:





I took this photo after getting into the habit of going out into nature in the early morning, as I had found that doing so helps me to start the day in a positive frame of mind. My wife was fighting off stage-3 cancer at the time, but responding well to her treatments, so it was a time of hope and optimism.
