The Best Time to Take a Shot is When You Are There

Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 24 September 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

Back to a few more shots from 10 years ago when all I had was an Olympus E-510 and a love for colors and sky.....
Truth here: This was a totally "Mid-Day shot! ... You know, the time of day when all good photographers are doing ANYTHING EXCEPT taking shots (or so the say :-)....Well. this was taken at 1:22 PM on October 8, 2006. I took the shot because we were there!! And I loved the colors...
We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this lake, Convict Lake, on the Eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.
I hope you enjoy this one :-)

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
