I was happy to find this scene at the top of a small hill while driving through the countryside. The land is mostly flat in this area, so I usually frame my photos with a lot of sky, but this time the foreground was interesting enough to give it some more real estate. When shooting fields I often go right up to the fence to shoot over it, but I thought this one was interesting, with it’s rusted wire and weathered wood, nature starting to take over, and of course the bird house, which seemed to be as old as the fence. The sunset started with a small patch of clouds in the distance catching the yellow light, which turned to orange and then pink as they moved toward me. I made this time stack by combining 184 photos into one image.

I decided to shoot this, randomly, spur of the moment. It really represents how I’ve been feeling at the moment.
This photo is dedicated to whoever has doubted their dreams.
At times, I feel really lost with what I want to accomplish with my photography. I worry about how I can make a living and if I can do this forever. What I’ve come to realize is that you need to spend less time worrying and more time just BEING. Creating. Doing what you do best. Don’t worry about fame or fortune….it only tears you down.
With so much talent out there, it is easy to pick on yourself and feel small. That is what this photo represents. You are the only one who can tie yourself down. Let your childhood dreams soar and come true, worry less and focus on creating.
Thank you for all of your support…lets all create amazing things this year <3
