Nature is my Inspiration!

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

I admire nature and I find myself constantly drawn back to photograph it in all its forms.

Landmark- Mount Rainier

The theme for Photography 101 today is Landmark and this picture at Mount Rainier National Park shot last year fall fits this category.

At an elevation of about 5100 feet we played a lot in the snow that day. This beautiful stratovolcano seemed just a few steps away while we knew it was miles further and beyond our reach. I like to visit this place every season as I am always drawn to its enchanted beauty.
