Calm before the storm

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 6 June 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is a false calm water...one can see by the color of the water that the storm is coming. At Lake Almanor, when it is hot in the valley (where Chico is), the thunder clouds gather over the lake, and storm often.

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.
