A vista doesn't have to be grand to be grand.
I've passed many hikers on the trail so intent on reaching their destination that they failed to see all the wonderful things along the journey! If you're fortunate enough to be outdoors, be sure to enjoy the little views. The grand vistas will come.
However, there's plenty to discover in your own backyard if that's your destination for the time being. Take some time to look around and discover all the plants and critters that share your space. Feel the warmth of the sunshine on your face. If you have a camera, take some photos! Photographing things that bring you joy can be very soothing for your soul. It's a great way to capture positive moments, making them into positive memories.
Photographing nature is a spiritual thing for me. I'm by no means a professional. I just capture things that speak to me and make me feel good. I use the photos to take me back to those positive moments when I'm under my rock and unable to travel. If you'd like to view more of my work or perhaps purchase something that speaks to you, visit my gallery site at www.kimclendenen.smugmug.com!
