A simple picture, I was just walking down the street when I brought my eyes up for a second to look at the light, and saw it shining like this through the clouds. It was very bright, but it was beautiful. The way it shines through the clouds, and illuminates them creating a halo effect, it’s just so cool. It’s so simple and passable, but it’s just something that when you take the time to notice it, it is truly amazing and beautiful. We should all take time to see the natural beauty around us in our lives everyday, and I think this is the perfect example.
Took this last year when I made my escape to the Grand Canyon. Ever since I was a little kid and when to Phoenix, AZ for the first time I fell in love with it. I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved Arizona. So when I was having some trouble last year and just needed to get away, getting away to a place like the Grand Canyon where I had never been but also in Arizona which is one of my favorite places, just made a ton of sense. It was really cool to see the Grand Canyon, it was a clear day for the most part but after a couple hours rain clouds started to come in and I got a couple few photographs. It was cool because it almost fit what was going on in my life. I went to a place where I knew I could admire nature and see the happiness there, but then it got darker because of the rain and I learned that sometimes that’s how life is. Sometimes life is going to get dark, but it doesn’t mean it’s any less beautiful; everyone has troubles. And I think this picture is the best representation of that as the darkness hasn’t fully taken over but even in the darkness the Grand Canyon is a beautiful place.
