Untitled photo

The land grows into you.

We moved to the Skagit Valley in 1977.
The smell of the earth and sounds of the wind and tractors
have been imprinted in my mind
… but the light; the light is the craftsman.

It’s beautiful and changes with the time of day and season.

It can come hard and burn the earth
and soft … Moving through water: mist, fog and rain.

It slows you down.

Often I grab my camera and go.
I’m not on the hunt … but waiting … letting it come to me …
A glance, a reflection, a quick unique moment of beauty never to
be revealed again … the light will change.
