Taking A Moment

The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.
― Henry Miller

These are two of my favourite pictures from my trip to the Great Bear Rainforest last June. I’ve posted them before, but these jumped out at me again when I was looking through my photo library.  We spent a lot of time at this waterfall in an inlet that was difficult to get to which made it an even more special place.  We really had the time to stop, put our cameras down, and just drink in all the scenery around us.  Sometimes when I’m taking pictures I have to remind myself to do that.  Sure it’s great to have photographs marking a moment in time or reminding you of places you’ve been, but to stop and look around and remember how you felt when you were in that moment in time or in that place, is part of the experience, too.
