Misty Forest Sunset

Strathspey sunset from Torr Alvie

Sunset over Strathspey  from Torr Alvie

Late afternoon strands of mist rose from the forest, turning fiery in the setting sun, the camera balanced on a convenient fencepost for support in the lower light.

I realised that one of the reasons I love nature photography, apart from being out in my favourite places and sharing the beauty I find there, is that in taking a photograph I am totally focussed on that moment, feeling where I am, assessing the  technical factors, composing the image.  Its a meditation.  Anything which brings us into “Now!” can be a useful practice.

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.”
– Joseph Campbell
