...no words can describe the light that turns the sky into an extraordinary reality !
perhaps beauty is reality's reminder of inmortality :heart:

Hey man, I just gotta say....I've been a member here on DeviantArt since....(I had to go back to check...but it appears I've been a member for 14 yrs)... so 2004-05 and this photo has forever been my inspiration to push forward with my craft...in one form or another. I've read your posts over the years that it's more about the "eye" and perspective than the tools/equipment, and I've truly abided by that mantra ever since. You either have it. Or you don't. And a lot of perseverance, tenacity, and WORK, in between--and ya better bust your booty in the between. It just doesn't happen over night. I just gotta say...thank you for THIS photo...and the words I read from this post and others you've pushed...it's not the thousands of dollars you invest in equipment/software/filters (etc)...but the amount of time you invest in yourself. Therein lies the wisdom. The ancients knew what the hell they were talking about. And today, there's no cheat without knowing the basics on how to "cheat" without knowing the fundamental foundations--photography/videography. Thanks for this photo. It taught me so much when I was but a kid..and yeah, in my early 30's, I was still...definitely a kid navigating this universe.


Thanks for your inspiration, which propelled me to continue to persevere to hone my craft in the many avenues I've evolved over these years. This post is homage to a shot that inspired me for these past 15 years--its not the equipment, but the opportunity to use your "eye"/perspective and what you've learned.


Best regards,

Travis

This image hangs in my home (I bought it framed, from DA), and inspired me to join DA and to start using my camera again.

Thanks!
