Prairie LightPrairie LightShooting a wedding on this day and in the drive to the next venue the skys gave me a little light show. Yes it is the beginning of a tornado. the clouds had begun to spin but luckly for all it did not touch down.

I have spent the last few months barely involved in photography, I take my camera out but to no avail. I thought, what I should do is go back and look at my old work and see if that inspires me. I have this issue of looking back at my work, I know I shouldn’t do it, but I do anyway.  Some of my most popular work, and most published work has been because of storms.

I think it’s about time I start getting involved and start posting those photographs that bring me the most emotional high at the very time the shutter clicks.  I know I have been lax in posting on this site, I am sure it is some form of feeling that I am not worthy.  It’s all an emotional fight within our own heads, the bane of a creatives mind.

Summer is coming and I’m starting to get excited.

This photograph is called “Prairie Light” it was captured well I was shooting a wedding.  It was an epiphany for me.  As we’re racing from one venue to the next I found a gathering storm far more exciting than the wedding that I were shooting.  I decided it was OK to be late just a little.  It reminded me just how much I love landscape photography!  Over the next six years every summer my heart beats much quicker with the drumbeat of the strong storm.
