Clouds in the Reservoir

There are so many places of unexpected beauty. How dazzling it is to capture the light just right, enough to take a lovely snap. What a feeling it is to walk towards a secluded reservoir; water as still as night with perfectly positioned wisps of white reflected onto its surface aloft the sandy bottom. There is no better time to reflect, after a stunning image is captured both in your mind, and subsequently on film. Sometimes, I feel like the world is whispering directly to me. There are many other ways to receive the message, other than opening up my ears to the sounds I think I perceive. I have to remember, yet I often forget, amongst the blessed magic, tragic moments, luck, no luck, journeys ahead, static, in sad times, in moments of passion and anger, I am only who I am. Just when I thought the whirlwind that is life clouded my senses, I find myself with a moment to think, alone next to the reservoir. What an unexpected flash of beauty and bliss, when technology and the mind intermix.

  1. your photo and your text reminded me of a quote by the great photographer, Ansel Adams
    “Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have somone click the shutter.” That’s a marvelous photo!
