in nature...

What I'm looking for isn't so hard to find.  Sometimes the grand thoughts of life consume me.  What job to find, what place to go next, how to get by. But sometimes it just takes a morning walk through nature with my camera.  Step lightly, look deeply, listen openly.  Dogs bark in the distance, trees breath, the dirt crumbles under the weight of my shoes.  I walk to clear my mind but nature leaves me in awe because it is so much more powerful than me. This isn't worrying, it's humbling. A kookaburra cries out in the distance, that infamous human-sounding laugh.  I look up to the bare tree branches and spot him. He waits for a second as I take the shot, and then he's gone.  This brief encounter stays with me for hours.
