Moving On – 2012

With 2011 coming to a close,  we tend to look back on the year and think about the goals we’ve accomplished, the trips we took or wanted to take, the people we meet, the people we have lost, the gifts we have received and what is in store for us, in 2012.

 I’m very thankful for the opportunity to travel all over America while capturing our beautiful landscapes and the weather that forms those landscapes.  Being able to travel and see these things first hand,  is one of the best “gifts” I could have ever asked for. It’s very difficult both physically and mentally, but the single element that drives it all is the passion and dedication I have for extreme weather and the discovery for new things. I hope you find everything you are looking for in 2012! Remember, don’t wait  or wish for something  to happen, make it happen.  

Happy New Year 2012!
