Sunday’s Hidden Treasure

The oops, sorry I’m late, Monday edition.

Neatly stacked, one atop the other, a rock cairn sitting among the boulders on the rocky coast at Rye Harbor. The sun is just about to peak above the horizon giving the cloudless sky a nice ogange glow

Weekly Photo Challenge, Create.

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

– Ansel Adams

All the photos below were made, “created” if you will, not simply taken.

To me, taken implies I just showed up and happened to be pointing my camera in the right direction at the right time. Made however, conveys the effort that went into the creation of the photograph. From choosing the subject and composition, to the willingness to be on location at 3 in the morning or kneel in an icy mountain stream, all to capture the image you have envisioned.

My suggestion to you is to get out there and create!
