Waiting for Spring to return

I know that it is only January and this has been a very mild winter but spring seems so far away right now.  When I go outside and capture the dried up remnants of last years growing seasons, it seems a bit sad.  Most of the color has gone out of the world.  Of course, gray and brown are colors but, you know what I mean.

So, until Mother Nature decides to push away the cold weather and I start complaining about it being too hot again, this is what we have to look at.  All things considered, nature is still amazing.  There are still patterns and textures that boggle the mind if we take time to admire them.

Perhaps the winter season is given to us as a gift to make us appreciate what surrounds us when the first buds appear and things turn green again.  Or perhaps this is a lesson to help me learn to find great subjects when nothing jumps out and grabs me immediately.  It is amazing what lengths God goes to for us to open our eyes!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
