Being at one with nature is a powerful presence â€” itâ€™s what I live for. We are constantly surrounded by beauty and sometimes you just have to feel it. Beneath the canopy of this tree is one of those moments Iâ€™ll never forget. It had just finished raining and the tree just popped with life. I studied the tree from all angles and took a series of shots from the outside. It was gorgeous. I wanted to push the composition even further and crawled beneath the canopy. I was blown away. This perspective was so powerful â€” the branches just reached out and told a story. The delicate leaves were like a veil â€” glistening with jewels of life â€” water. Instinct told me to put on a wide angle lens and capture this beauty. A nodal point tripod head enabled me to take a series of exposures to capture the entire beauty and width of this mesmerizing scene. Each exposure was one second â€” it felt like one hour I was so high on anticipation.
