Hello and Welcome! 

“Peace In Nature”

I see nature naturally. A weed as pretty as a flower. A gray sky as beautiful as a puffy blue sky day. A vast landscape as heaven on earth.

When I started this journey five years ago I never anticipated what would evolve. I purchased a drone for my wheelchair handicapped husband. I gave him an activity, vision beyond four walls, disease and disability, focus, fun and family time. Then we lost him later that year following a simple surgery. A lifetime of love — gone.

My tears blocked my vision. Life became about finding peace of mind: taking long drives with music playing to escape, to find tranquil places, beautiful landscapes, the sounds of nature, a breath of fresh air, changing of the seasons and a new life for me. I often found myself at the places we had flown together for it brought comfort. Those places became published, nominated and awarded.

I had the opportunity to finally explore life in the woods, for caring for a handicap has it’s limitations to life. So I hiked: In snow. In mud. In sun. In rain. In the dark. Alone.

Each step, each breath, brought peace.

Photography has given me life. It gave me peace of mind. Enjoying the peaceful scenery of the forest and focusing on subjects became far more than a hobby. My collection is vast. Land, aerial shots of nature, forest, fungi, landscapes, life. I hope you enjoy my days, my peace in nature.

Live life enjoyably,

Amy
