Before it Begins

And there I was. Standing in the middle of the meadow before the sun was to rise. The sky was covered in clouds, with just a little bit of clearing where perhaps the sun would reflect its warming rays upon. The birds were chirping and singing in the […]

A Sweet Reward

This past week has been filled with catching up with life’s regular to-do’s and I haven’t had much of a chance to go out on a photo walkabout. This summer I’ve had a big “Pay-it-forward” project at a nearby paddock that holds two horses that needed some additional […]
