Here we are once again on Christmas Eve, a time when the anticipation of the holiday season transforms into celebration and reflection with family and loved ones. I hope you have the opportunity to spend quality time with those special people or engage in an activity that you enjoy.
With each passing year of life (my birthday was yesterday), the more I understand that the greatest gift at this time of year is not within a package underneath the tree, but rather the opportunity to reflect upon and share the experiences we've enjoyed throughout the past year and anticipate what's to come in the next. As a nature and landscape photographer, I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to witness some of the most beautiful locations and phenomena in the natural world and to share, as best as I can, a small piece of that with you. To continue to do that is truly the best gift I receive every year.
My best wishes to you for a safe, enjoyable holiday season and prosperity in the new year. There is much to look forward to on the trail ahead!
