It is hard for me to believe it is already Thanksgiving, where did most of 2013 go?

I have so very much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I see the most incredible things in nature and I am blessed to be able to capture it all through my lens.

I have the best of old friends, wonderful new friends and the greatest best friends. I am thankful for all the people I meet because of my passion for photography, whether in person or on line.

I am thankful for my family and even though they live far away they are in my thoughts today. Especially this year.

And I am thankful for all of you who come to my blog and read about my images and the stories behind them.
