PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: “Find a way to do what you love, that which speaks to your heart.” I heard someone say this just a couple of days ago. When life gets busy, it is easy to bypass the things we are passionate about as we tend to the tasks at hand. This image is a testament to the times when I stop and do what is peaceful and brings serenity. On the last day of the year, we purposely took a day to do what we love to do. So we went in search of ducks. We had scouted the ponds for the last few weeks and knew right where to go. So we sat at the edge of the water and waited for the presence of nature to reveal itself. Just about the time we decided to head home, this drake paddled its way towards the spillway just to my left. With each dive, I crept in closer and closer. Within a short while, he popped up in the cool light just in front of me. A lot of folks have looked at my work and said, “it must take you many hours to get these shots.” “Yes, but I have more fun than patience”, I reply. What I love about nature photography is not so much the final photo, but the calm and excitement of the experience itself. It is in each moment of the journey where the beauty lingers longest.
