Photography has always been an excellent outlet for me. Nature photography is my favorite because I get to be outside immersed in beautiful surroundings which, in of itself, can bring about a sense of peace. I also enjoy the hunt to find something compelling to photograph. I always use the viewfinder on my camera instead of the digital screen because I like the way that the viewfinder narrows my field of vision and focuses me. For those few moments when I am taking a picture, all that’s important is what can be captured and bound within that little square. It crops out anything extraneous, all that extra noise. This can be particularly helpful if you are feeling overwhelmed and scattered by everything going on in your life. Just take your time and focus on the little snapshots of life. I took this picture while walking around my favorite pond in New Hampshire.
