Mackerricher State Park, Fort Bragg CA
Creative awakenings are rare, at least for me. I am new to expressing myself through an art medium, drawing, painting, mixed-media and now photography. But, every time I feel my mind let go and my hands and heart create I feel myself fill with blissful happiness.
I walked through this arch of trees, in the mist. The sun just peaking over the hills, the world stretching before the day begins.
I tried to capture this moment with my own eyes first. I stopped and enjoyed this for a long moment. When I raised my camera to take a photograph, most of the beauty was lost. The sunlight was all my lens could see. Everything surrounding turned dark.
I tried twice to capture what I saw. But, figured the image was lost. Between then and now, I feel transformed. Working on my image for the One Four Challenge this week I learned some new tricks and ways to bring an image to life in great thanks to some thoughtful comments left on my post. It is inspiring! The path I find myself on at the moment is one that makes me want to run, forward, wind in my hair, each stride painting new ways to see what I thought was lost.
I am so grateful for this awakening, today.
