Shine the light in my face, through me and around me. I live for moments just like this.

Trapped In Time
There was a house in the woods, once.
It became ensnared by the very idea that created it.
Year after year I watched.
And did my best to learn
This is one of my favorite old barns in the area where I live. I've always wanted to photograph its slow slide into ruin surrounded by a ghostly light and mist.
I finally got my chance one evening after it had been raining. The rain stopped earlier, then the temperature settled into the perfect fog-generating zone.
It was nearly dark when I stopped to create this image; totally dark by the time I finished. I shot it at 1600 ISO, which I can get away with on my Fujifilm cameras... f/7.1 and a 30 second exposure.
That combination created just the amount of light, mist and eeriness that I'd wanted to capture in this spot for years. It was a really fun and special night!

Climb Like a Girl
Because you can.
And because you're awesome if you do.
Climb Up Fall
Around here, climbers and skiers are the Heroes. Come Fall, they know they've only got a few good climbing days left for the year.
I don't know if they know intrepid photographers look for frame-ups just like this, combining the two though! hehheh.
"My needs are few," she said.
"Although I have some wants."
The Universe cocked its universal head and waited expectantly.
"I need clean air, good food, great friends, ease of riches and a lovely place to live.
I want for my imagination to always create great things that are for my highest good and the good of others. If I can have those things, I'd be golden."
And so she was.
May your light shine bright...
May your peace be complete...
May your world be full of color and the brilliance of all-that-is.
Bathing In Gold
In the Grove of Spun Gold
There is a place where visions are brighter, ideas are better, the light is gentler and the spun gold that permeates the air makes you a better person.
It looks a bit like this.
Brilliance Is Golden
The Veil Between Worlds
Sometimes maddeningly dense, sometimes wafting softly...
the veil between worlds floats, just within reach.
A Spot Just For You
Come on, pull up a chair.
We'll listen to the river, relax and talk about things that make us happy.

Just open up your heart and let
This pool rush in.
Rushing Home to You
There's something in my nature
that makes me always want to
rush home to you.
