If the start of 2012 is any indication, this year could end up being one of the busiest (and most fulfilling) of my life. So much has happened in the year's first eight weeks, can you guess which of the elements of my "Grow. Share. Observe. Learn. Pause. Focus." mantra I've ignored the most? That's right: Pause.
So tonight, as I was reviewing the ever-increasing agenda for the upcoming week, I noticed the setting sun out our dining room windows. I slung my camera over my shoulder, headed out the door and drove west into a giant orange ball of a setting sun. Ten miles of county road later, I turned south just as the sun slipped below the horizon. I've driven past this dilapidated farm building on the hill countless times over the past two decades, each time thinking, "That would be a great sunset photo."
This evening, I pulled to the side of the road, paused, and turned that thought into reality.
