Chasing the Light
There's not much I like better in life than riding around in a truck, windows down, sometimes the radio on, just looking. Looking at crops, looking at cows, looking for old buildings, and chasing the light. Chasing the glint of sunlight, the golden glow, the soft touch of morning, the last fiery color or evening.
This day the light was gorgeous and I don't know if these pictures really reflect that. The light was fading and I didn't have time to really think about what I was doing. It was hurry up, trust your instinct, and grab the camera. There's not a lot of edit to these, just a little pop of contrast, a little color correction, and that's it. I had honestly forgotten about these and found them in a folder I am cleaning out of unedited images. These were taken in the fall some time when it was just starting to cool down and the light has that warm golden glow that I wait all year for. Just some sage brush. Just a little light.
And I'll leave you with this quote my lovelies....
"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has
power to move you, if the simple things of nature
have a message that you understand, rejoice,
for your soul is alive."
- Eleonora Duse 1858-1924
