What Are The Thorns In Your Crown?

Finding Henry - Discovering My Muse

Have you ever been frustrated because you can't seem to make your passion work out the way you want it to?

Fish and I were exploring the woods near Mount Evans, near a creek called Chicago Creek.  The area was beautiful and I was taking a lot of pictures.

We got home and I started editing the images I took and I hated them all. I mean really hated them and I was sure that it was really time to give up on this photography thing.  

And then I discovered Henry.

Henry is a lodgepole pine that was near the creek and I didn't "see" him when I took the picture and perhaps that is why my photography is really not very good.

But, I saw him during the editing process, and suddenly, everything came together, it was clear what technique I should be using. I also realized how I should set things up, what settings I should use, and most importantly, what I should focus on.

He is now my muse and I am grateful that I found him.
