This image was captured traveling somewhere between Denver, Colorado and Wyoming headed toward Yellowstone National Park several years ago. I wish I could remember, but it is neither here nor there, because it is not the location but the image that I love.This was taken with my first DSLR, my little Nikon D40 that had only 6 megapixels. It was the beginning of a passion for photography that exploded within me; a need to know more about finding light and how to expose correctly to capture great images. That same passion is still with me today!
I spent so much time trying to learn the ins and outs of all the features my first “real” camera had to offer, including shutter speeds to capture motion, and white balance to portray my images with colors as my eyes saw them. Being able to capture the plane’s propellers in motion against the backdrop of the clouds and sky was a huge thrill for me. I spent all my time in manual mode because I wanted to learn how to control the camera—and I still do.
No matter where I am, or who I am with, I am always looking at light, shadows, objects, faces, and special moments. Moments that help me to remember the gifts of the day.
I hope that you take a moment to find the day’s gift to you too.
Have a wonderful weekend.
