"A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words"

For me, one of the beautiful things about photographing nature is that an image, or series of images, can evoke a feeling or make a statement without the need to utter words.
The old expression "A picture is worth a thousand words", refers to the belief that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image, or that an image of a subject conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a description does.


I have titled the above image "Where Power Meets Serenity". My hope was to convey an idea without any further explanation.

There are times I feel compelled to share some of my personal thoughts or revelations on life with my image/s...

Sometimes we encounter "storms" in our lives, and we may have absolutely no power to alter or improve the situation. It is at these times that my photography has been a welcome source of therapy; my "happy place", as I like to call it.
Being surrounded by nature and photographing its beauty has the ability to instill peace, soothe my soul and calm my mind... My focus switches from the difficult circumstances of life, to the gratitude I have for life itself, for the wonderful people I share my life with, and the blessing of God's creation.



There are other times when I enjoy the challenge of seeking out a quote that may convey the message of my image...

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude." ~ Denis Waitley

These are priceless photographs. You captured the lighting perfectly. The sea is expressing its power. When people are in the images the composition is wonderful.
