White Mountain Winter

“Aren’t you sick of all this snow?” The girl at the bank asked

“no, not really” I said smiling.

The girl looked at me strangely before changing the subject. I’m used to it. I’m one of the few people that loves when we get three snowstorms in a row. Winter can be absolutely beautiful time of year. That afternoon my boyfriend and I went up to the Basin. I found that myself reveling in the snow that was falling. I was kneeling in snowbanks to get new shots. As I was sitting there I realized how much I enjoyed it, taking shot after shot and realize I was thinking about how to present it.

I have come to the realization that I want do do something that makes me happy. I find that when I’m out in the woods, that I cannot hep but take pictures. I am constantly looking around me, and trying to find perfect pictures and finding things to write about. I want to take what I am seeing and bring that to others. With new technology, we are supposedly closer. Yet as years go by I cannot help but see that we continue to get further and further from nature and the wonderful things that are outside.

I hope that by portraying these beautiful places I can bring some attention to them. I can show others how valuable they are and why they need to be protected. In turn I can spend my time outside and be able to do something fulfilling with my life. I am not the type of person that can climb the corporate structure. I want to blaze an independent path, and look back at my life and be proud of what I accomplished.
