Water Gallery

“Water” Swamps are my favorite places. Water being the giver of all life, I am continually amazed at the perfection and richness of nature. Layers and layers of interconnected life – the perfect balance of this gorgeous planet. I think when I die, the saddest thing for me will be closing my eyes for the last time on this beautiful Earth. If there is a Heaven, I can’t possibly imagine it being more beautiful than my Earth. And so I creep around the edges of water, hoping for the surprises that are eerily there, the perfectly still biggest snake I’ve ever seen, right under my nose as I was gazing right past it over the water, rigidly staring at me as I was staring at it, wondering if my orange sneakers looked anything like food, and if this might be my last day on Earth, or the deer peeping at me from between the branches of a tree just as my journey started, so close it startled me, or the never forgotten foiled swan flock flyover, with an amazing whirring musical hum I’ve never experienced, so low and close to me that never again did I start walking into a photo shoot without my camera ready. I never realized how much comedy there is in non-human life; watching a pigeon walk down steps is hilarious. I feel excitement every time I head out for a photo shoot, as I’ve learned that the surprises happen simply by placing yourself in nature. See more heron images below.
