I look around, scan from one side of the heavens to the other.
I wish my eyes could see more than I do in my limited peripheral vision. I wish I could truly see the panoramas that I get to photograph, to take in the 360 degrees of glory around me.
As the seasons have changed, from emerald and turquoise to fiery gold to a blanket of white with bluebird above, my life can be captured in panoramas. People travel from the ends of the earth to see the exotic views, the wild of Alaska, the rugged mountains that I get to see every single day.
As a photographer, I am constantly amazed at my own inability to capture the vibrance of color, to accurately paint the light that is seen. It has been the grasping of every artist in every age, to accurately reproduce the sunsets and scenes and hues and atmosphere around them. It is humbling to know that as humans we are limited in this, that God’s glory cannot be accurately reproduced.
Breathe it in. Just breathe. This is life.
