Composition


"The camera is a remarkable instrument. Saturate yourself with your subject, and the camera will all but take you by the hand and point the way"  Margaret Bourke-White

At the trailhead of my favorite hike, I often stand here perplexed. I am completely enamored with this scene but have yet to photograph it the way I truly "see" it. 

Each time...I study it, I look, I sit and stare, sometimes I'm content to just "be" with it. Other times, I know it's not my day and I walked past it. As I leave, I always look over my shoulder at it.

I love the stillness of the water, I love the color of the early morning sun on the canyon walls. So I'm convinced that this place holds for me a secret and the secret is ...

that somewhere in this scene is an absolute masterpiece and someday,I'll find it
