Happy New Year – Welcoming in 2013 with ambition

Everyone seems to see the new year as a time for change. I never really understood the point in ‘waiting’ to make changes that you want to make for a certain date – we waste alot of time ‘waiting’ and alot of people procrastinate in the face of change. Resolutions seem to lead to procrastinating so why wait to make change – instead seize the day and use your time wisely. There is no better time than the present (especially considering it’s the New Year) to set a list of goals and changes for the year to accomplish.

“It is never too late or too soon. It is when it is supposed to be….You marked the minutes, but did you use them wisely? To be still? To cherish? To be grateful? To lift and be lifted?”

– Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper

Photo of the Day – Grand Tetons

From my first trip out west in 2006 – I woke early one morning to shoot pictures of the mountains in Grand Teton National Park. I was using my little point and shoot then (maybe 4 megapixels) but I’m still happy with the way the shoot turned out.


Yellowstone Reflections

I just started getting into photography when I went out west to Yellowstone – I purchased a couple hundred dollar Canon Powershot for the trip and that thing did take some amazing pictures. This was one of the first mornings we were there. I woke early and went out to this spot that I had scouted the morning before (unfortunately this was nine years ago so I can’t remember where it was) and got a bunch of shots. Back then I didn’t know to move around or you come back with 90 of the exact same shot just with differing light so I have a lot of this same spot. I did know at that point to try and incorporate something in the foreground to add a sense of scale – so at least I had that part right!

Anyone know exactly where this is? It could be in Grand Teton National Park too – I didn’t keep accurate notes back then? Either way I NEED to get back there….soon.
