10 on 10: A New Year, A New Phone, and a Wiser Me

It’s good to be back to my blog for my first post of the year!

I’ve taken some time to get settled in, set some goals, and say goodbye to anything that wasn’t working for me in 2014.

Solana Beach

I spent a lot of time by the ocean in the first ten days of this year — taking time for reflection, time with visiting friends, and time doing what makes my heart and soul soar with glee —  getting to the ocean to capture and share the beauty I see.    I began to love taking photos with my new iPhone 6,  which I used to take all the photos in this post.

I’ve been loving the freedom in only having to carry my phone–such a small device, while climbing rocks and hills, or running through the sand to get to the shot I see off in the distance.

These days on the beach seemed to be more beautiful than any days I’d ever seen.  Sometimes the beauty made me feel my heart would explode!

I’ve recently asked friends if they feel the elation and exuberance that I do while at the beach with perfect light, amazing clouds that diffuse and dapple the light onto the ocean, seagulls flying, pelicans soaring in the spray of the waves, colorful sunsets after the storms, etc.,  and for many the answer was no.  Sure, they liked it, but there was something else in their lives that made them feel the bliss that I do when I’m at the beach with my camera.   I’ve realized that I’m on the right path.   Living where I do definitely suits me and so does my work.

So I’ll continue photographing families and women in nature, and I’ll continue creating  the seascapes that I love, and I’ll continue to run to the beach each time I sense that the sky will be lit up by the greatest brush strokes of God and Mother Nature, because the way that makes me feel is the way I want to feel every day of my life.
