The Life….

DSC_8018That is what I thought as I walked back up the long dirt path to the place where I set up my chair and camera.  Off in the middle of nowhere.  Half way between Wind Cave and Custer State Park.  A quaint little hill overlooking the grassy valley.  The sun shining bright as it prepared to set and not a bug around.

I had searched long and hard for the perfect place to sit and watch the sun go down.  I don’t know if this was necessarily it.  There was a vast amount of acreage in this park, but I did find that it was the best place for me.

During my time in this spot, I saw but three cars and they never bothered me. I had the whole place to myself.  It blessed me with so many things that I didn’t really think I’d ever experience.  A peace of mind.  A clarity. A connection.  And the coyotes howling at the moon.

As I was walking up the path, the scene above caught my eye.  It reminded me of the perfect little setup that a photographer would use. Most the time I sit on the ground, but this moment wasn’t really about taking pictures.  The camera would be set once and the remote would do most of the work.  Still, for a moment I felt like a photographer and I think that this is a peaceful pic.

I hope that you have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
