Endless Rivers

of Hope

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”

—Henry David Thoreau—

This is one of my favorite ‘wave photographs’ from the recent batch. I think it’s a great fit for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge: Movement.

It’s funny about the quote (above). I remind myself constantly to be present, to be grateful, and to be satisfied. After going through my latest images, one of my first thoughts was that I need a new lens, with more zoom. I guess the truth of the matter is that I just need to get a little closer. Ha!

I started posting on Instagram yesterday—hoping to share one photo a day—and this was the shot I used this morning. I was disappointed that I had to crop a lot of it out, in order to fit the required “square,” so I decided to share a wider version here. Waves are so cool. I was excited that I captured this one’s movement, before it crashed.

Anyway, I’ve been inspired lately, by so many of the photographer-bloggers out there. Every one of you makes me think (or see things) differently; sparking the old imagination and encouraging me to get out there and do it again. Thank you all for sharing, and for keeping me motivated.

Life is good, and God is great! Enjoy the rest of the weekend…

    I hope you enjoy exploring Instagram. I started out posting my photography there, just a small commitment I made to myself to post one image a day. I never anticipated how this would grow and what wonderful people I would encounter. This wave image is stunning, you really captured it at the perfect moment.

      Thank you! I’m doing the same thing oddly enough, a photo a day (not sure if I said that in my post). So far I’m already enjoying it and it’s great incentive to keep me going. I appreciate your comment, and maybe I’ll see you out there. 🙂
