Mystic Stream

Once in a while, we find ourselves confronted by a

scene so special that we just stop and soak it in.
Wow, Look at that……….or, deep breath, lowered voice,
wow, look at that…….

Leave the camera on the tripod and just sit….
Just sit, see, and feel…..
Allow the scene to permeate our senses…
And when we are saturated by the beauty of nature…

Then and only then should we get up,
Remember the camera, select the lens, F/stop,
Filter, shutter speed, and choose the perfect composition,
To render what is felt into what is shown.

Take a moment if you will, sit at your monitor,
Take a deep breath and join me in the hushed
Spell of this Mystic Stream.
