Getting off a Beaten Path

How much time changes landscape. Last time I visited Zion 7 years ago. Two friends-photographers and me were the only ones photographing at sunrise behind old visitor center. Here is the photo I took that morning: Zion in the Morning.

Just a couple of weeks ago I visited Zion again. This time there were 40 photographers there waiting for sunrise. It looked like a line of people attacking the landscape. I’m glad the popularity of landscape photography grew so much over the years. At the same time I start missing serenity and serendipity of some landscapes.

Nevertheless it was a good thing for me because it forced me to leave that place and go on the search for new places. And I’m glad I did. I found what I think is much stronger composition:

To My Wife on 11/11/11

Today is a special day. Not only because today is 11/11/11 but also because today is 11th anniversary of Elia’s and my marriage.

That 11 years of joyful moments. Thanks, Elia, for being by my side all this time. Thanks for supporting me in my photographic endeavors. Thanks for being the best and most honest critic. And most of all thanks for our son.
