"THE SKY IS THE LIMIT"
I had set out that morning to photograph the church that you can see in one of the other images of this collection, SPIRIT OF THE PLAINS. But on the way, I almost got myself stuck on an incredibly muddy road. I've been known to push my trusted Forester past the norm a time or two, but I decided that morning it was just too risky. Bummed, I abandoned the plan, for which I had gotten out of bed at 2 a.m. and driven more than two hours. Determined to not let a beautiful morning with wonderful conditions go to waste, I started to look for something else to photograph.
Out on Colorado's Eastern Plains, many would just drive through, not finding much in the vast open space with seemingly "not much around". But to me, that couldn't be farther from the truth. I am incredible drawn to those places where the mind has enough space to truly wander off, places that allow me to think the thoughts that are too big for inside.
The kind of imagery that captures that feeling of freedom, that invites you, the viewer, to get lost in the photograph and have the scene be a resting place for your busy mind before you go on about your day — that is the most rewarding kind of image. That's the kind of image that is worthy of hanging on a wall, always sending out an invitation to take things a little slower today, if only for a minute or two.
That's the power of a fine art nature photograph. That's when THE SKY IS THE LIMIT.
