Winter Capture Yosemite

By smartbox
Yosemite is one of the few places in the world where I can truly find my inner peace. I am not a great city dweller. Having to carry a job and life in suburbia is my price of admission for choosing to partake in my reality. It is my hope, that some day, I can figure out how to change my current predicament. Escaping to Yosemite with my camera and having experiences of a different type of reality is my way of keeping my sanity. I always leave this park a different person than the one that shows up.

I am very thankful for the experience that I am able to have in Yosemite. I am also feel very privileged to be able to share my experiences with other people. For me photography is more than a simple hobby. Photography is really the only way that I have found that allows me to put into a medium that represents my relationship between the beauty of Mother Nature and the emotion that is the result of my interaction within this realm of physicality.

Some people can beautifully express themselves by painting a picture. Other people are a master of putting together the most beautiful words. All I can offer is a simple photograph.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful mono Smartbox and thank you for your thoughts on photography and Yosemite. It is clearly a place I must visit. I also have similar feelings about photography: it is the way I have found that I can be creative and also have a deep relationship with a place. When in the photographic flow, if I can put it like that, I can completely forget the stresses of the week and be absorbed in something completely different and fulfilling. Thank you for sharing your thoughts
