  • As the sun is slowly setting on 2018 we are reminiscing about all the amazing things that have happened for our organization. We will be bringing all of our hard work and persistence into 2019 for even better results!.

.”It’s good to be lucky. Persistence will usually get you the desired results (in photography, at least). But sometimes you just get lucky on the first try. I’d been wanting to photograph the aptly named Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park at sunrise ever since I first laid eyes on it. I knew that, if preparation and effort happened to mix with a little bit of serendipity, it would be a beautiful scene. It had snowed the day before this attempt, and we got up super early from our campsite for the early morning hike. It was icy and slippery on the short hike in the dark to get to this spot. We questioned our sanity a few times on the way as we slipped in the dark. But we made it to the spot with plenty of time, and waited for the magic to happen. And boy, did it ever. It was an insanely beautiful sunrise that morning, accented by the freshly fallen snow. I love the alpine glow, but fell in love with the orange reflection on the iced over lake. It was a sunrise to remember. I would have kept going back day after day until I got this shot..but sometimes it’s really nice just to be lucky.”

  • Para arrancar el día nada mejor que una frase que nos inspira... porque la imaginación lo es todo... Algo que nace en los primeros juegos de nuestra infancia y debe alimentarse para que nos acompañe el resto de nuestras vidas...

Y ustedes que imaginan ¡Cuentenos!😊

¡Que tengan un excelente Martes! 👋

  • Nearly There, Yet/If My Soul Could Get Away

I am back. It took three hours of dithering to leave the flat but eventually I am back at the signpost, at the start of the path that leads…somewhere. I sense some reluctance, hesitation. Is it because it is nearly 4pm by now and the light is fading fast, or is the reluctance the reason I’ve left it so late in the day? I step into the trees and make mental note of the places I’ve seen before and how they look different on this dark afternoon. I meet dog walkers and feel a moments’ reassurance, almost immediately followed by panic; just because someone has a dog doesn’t make them a good person, and I am alone and it is nearly dark. Quelling the irrational fears I push on and become fascinated by the almost silhouetted telegraph wires. I can’t work out where I am in relation to home but assume that so long as I can see the Clyde to my left, I’ll be fine. As much as I wanted to get away from it all, the twinkling lights by the water are a comfort.

This new work documents my efforts to expand on the boundaries imposed by limited finances and fractured health, while considering the idea of distance - geographical markers of progress as well as the gap between expectation, representation and reality. See this and more from @anneleenphoto @camilacavalcante.art @adamfowlerphoto @pixelchristi @phil.lavery at the ‘Landmarks’ exhibition in Edinburgh in March. #transient #collective #transient_collective #photography #contemporary #patriothall #patriothallgallery #Edinburgh #Scotland #exhibition #landmarks #documentary #scottishphotography #scottishphotographers #edinburghexhibition #helensburgh #walking #mentalhealthawareness #johnmuir #johnmuirway #health #unemployment #limitations #boundaries #territory #home #hometown #edges #distance Nearly There, Yet/If My Soul Could Get Away

  • The extent of my day as the sun went down. I did teach early on, took a dance class too. I watered the garden, things are sprouting, the hyacinths and orchids are looking good. This book on meditation is from John Muir. So comforting and inspiring, it was written 100yrs ago and one would never know.  There seems to be a revival of his work, those seeking enlightenment and a deeper appreciation of the natural world. #johnmuir #muirwoods #yosemite #kingscanyonnationalpark #transcendentalmeditation #nature

  • “This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” #johnmuir #canon5dmarkii #ptreyes
