Journey Never Ending
I’ve not met a single photographer who didn’t travel for his art. Some definitely travel further than others and some, travel a whole lot more often than others. But photographers seem to be natural travelers, explorers, and wanderers taking the camera along to record their memories. The good photographers are happy with their finds and keep searching. The great photographers are never totally happy and cannot stop searching. Searching not for that great photograph, but for the adventure at the end of the road and the memories that search brings to their lives. Why, perhaps they love telling stories?!
I honestly don’t know how many times I’ve traveled to the end of the road in Denali. I do know that the journey or search has never been the same twice, not even close. That’s why I keep going back with my camera with eyes wide open for whatever appears. Critters are the obvious attraction and we did see a lot of Moose. But the light brought life to the landscape that was captivating. The challenge is bringing the vastness of the land to the image and the light was so magical, even that was done for us. Then all that was required was to follow that natural cred of the photographer acknowledging the journey never-ending.
