An Inspirational Moment

 

I hope that people can look at my pictures and see the hand of God .

 

 

 

I feel this hand was indeed at work the day I was in the Great Smoky Mountains hoping to photograph one of my most challenging subjects which are black bears . They never seem to stop long enough to get a good , sharp image of them and being that they have a darker shade of color it is extremely difficult to get the exposure right while photographing them .

 

 

While waiting for a bear that day , an eight-point buck crossed my path. I hid behind a tree, but the lighting was bad . The buck kept walking, and I followed from a distance . Then I couldn't have asked for anything better . He laid down , then I crept in as slowly and quietly as I could . He looked at me and I thought I had missed the opportunity . He just looked at me and allowed me to photograph him for over a half-hour .

 

 

When he had enough , he stood up and walked away . Before he stood up and moved on I thanked him for allowing me to take his picture and just enjoy his beauty .

 

 

 

 

" God shows his love to us everyday through the beauty of Nature, the sad thing is most of us are in such a hurry we never even see it! " .
