I am on a workshop with TJ Avery and Marti Jeffers in Big Bend National Park. Working on site with a group of like-minded photographers is the best gift I could give myself. After 25 years, I still have so much to learn with new equipment and new challenges. Although a seasoned photographer in the daylight, I was bumbling around in the dark at 4:30am in a graveyard. My mind was blank for a few minutes, letting me know I need to push these boundaries a bit more often. Thanks to my teachers, I have taken my first photograph of the Milky Way. Stellar.
