“Into the North” – Youngs Point

"Into the North" - Youngs Point

“The most beautiful things happen, along the way. Stop and enjoy them.”
– Ed Lehming

Today, I’m doing a quick post and starting to get myself back into the discipline of posting and writing about my photos more frequently. I realized just how much I had dropped from my routine.

I had a significantly disruptive life event in March, which pulled the rug out from under me, creatively. I may talk about that at some point, as I continue to process it. Needless to say, the event caused me to stop doing the thing I love. Namely, photography.

It’s a strange thing that I fell away from the very thing that has always been my outlet and refuge through all the stresses life throws at us.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve done the very thing that I encourage others to do. Simply stop and enjoy all the beautiful things along the way.

The image above was taken from the side of the highway on our way north to our camper. I’d been admiring the thunderstorms on the horizon for some time, but there was never a good view from places where it was safe to stop. Finally, I found a short opening that offered this view of the clouds, lit up bright pink by the setting sun.
