Welcome to the world of light-chasing, where you’ll be able to escape to the high country a few times each week with a short photo essay, usually with a natural history or environmental twist. At its core, photography is all about balance, whether it’s balancing the light and the dark, or balancing elements in the photo for composition. Along with stimulating a sense of place or triggering an emotional response, a well-balanced photograph can also evoke Zen, just like a carefully tended sand garden. The process of making those images is part of my path to inner peace.
