"Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
⁓ Mary Oliver
Thank you to all who answered my poll of questions in regards to my images on what you'd like to continually see in my gallery...
It seems the pull is more towards earthy images? However, there was quite a pull towards my daily rituals as well which I rarely share with anyone....
Thank you again for taking the time to answer and view my stories....
Have a blessed & inspiring day everyone!
Who else loves camping?
The peace and quiet, the sounds of the critters in the trees, the fresh air and the feeling of freedom that comes with carrying everything you need with you?
Well none of that changes in winter!
Sure you exchange warm, sunny days for new challenges but the reward is totally worth learning to overcome if you just get out there. If you're unsure of the whole thing go for a single night, bring lots of layers, and don't stray too far from safety in case you need to bail. More tips to come soon or if you have your own share them below ❄😊❄
Love the mist. -
I have always found this interesting. First I heard @ryrongracie talk about it, then I heard someone recently say the same thing. If someone cuts us off, what’s our “DMA” or Dominant Mental Attitude? In other words, what is first thing that comes to our mind? (That’s how our circuit overseer explained it.) Are we going to get mad at the person that cut us off? Or are we going to be understanding because we know what it feels like to be in a hurry or late to something? I believe optimism is something that is practiced. Understandably, some people have an easier time being optimistic because they naturally have a smaller temper than others around them. I also think we should take a look at things from other people’s perspective more often than we do. That’s a big step into the world of optimism. It really means putting others before ourselves and, out of love, being understanding. I could go on and on, but I think you get the jist. Thanks for reading. Comment! Let’s have a conversation down below!
I am super stoked to finally be able to announce my first workshop for 2018.
I am teaming up with two great photographers, @photojbartlett and @thefella for an epic photography workshop in Iceland.
The workshop is held from June 16 to June 23.
Our workshop will take you on a journey along Iceland’s west coast, from Reykjavik to Akureyri. With numerous waterfalls, and vast mountain landscapes.

One of the biggest challenges with landscape photography is finding unique compositions in places that have been extensively photographed by others. These trees provided a unique foreground with the Cuernos peaks in the background. This was definitely one of my favorite sunrises from this trip.
Light to Night Festival Returns Bigger, Bolder and Brighter at Singapore’s Civic District
Light to Night Festival returns from 19 to 28 January 2018 & looks set to paint Singapore’s Civic District in a dazzling array of colours as it transforms iconic cultural institutions & parks into a creative canvas with spectacular works of art.
In its second edition, the Festival will expand from an anniversary celebration event by National Gallery Singapore in 2016 to become a precinct-wide arts festival spearheaded by the Gallery, together with four other precinct partners – The Art House, Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall, Asian Civilisations Museum and The Esplanade. It is also one of the marquee events of Singapore Art Week.
Themed ‘Colour Sensations’, the Festival will take visitors on a captivating, multi-sensorial journey through the changing colours of the precinct from day to night with the various commissioned works. They can look forward to a vibrant kaleidoscope of public art & activities by artists from Singapore & beyond, including interactive light projections, immersive colourscapes, illusionary play with mirrors, & participatory indoor works & performances that span seven programme zones in the precinct – making it the largest precinct-wide visual, literary & performing arts festival in Singapore.
Ms Suenne Megan Tan, Festival Director, Light to Night Festival 2018, & Director (Audience Development & Engagement), National Gallery Singapore said, “The Civic District is home to major cultural institutions in Singapore & prides itself as an arts & cultural hub right in the heart of the city. Light to Night Festival aims to extend this experience beyond the walls of these timeless monuments & into the public spaces for a multi-generational audience to gather & enjoy the art around them. We believe that by making art easily accessible, we can encourage more encounters of public art around the precinct, gradually raise their appreciation towards art, & over time nurture a greater art-loving community.”
