“We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.” – Hilaire Belloc
Tripod sticks in hand, backpack loaded up, memory cards emptied, and batteries charged…..oh, and a healthy snack or two for the hike. For some, clearing your mind and recharging resembles a lounge chair on a sandy beach with a Pina’ Colada. (actually, that really sounds good now that I think of it!) Nothing wrong with that of course, but there is a side of me that gets more of a charge (or a recharge shall I say) treking about the landscape in search of the image.
I set up for this shot just a few boulders past a pack of artists that were painting the landscape scenes on canvas. I stopped and chatted to a few of them and admired there work. I’ve always had this side of me that wishes I was a painter. Not exactly sure why I have never tried……. For now, my canvas is the screen and my palette of color that I dip into comes from the digital space. In the eyes of the painter, I might be seen as a cheater, but its how I create…and that’s ok by me 🙂
So, by the way, I am getting a little closer to creating a few little clips of tips and tricks for HDR processing, capture, workflow, yada yada yada…
