It makes you stop and be in that one moment. When I am photographing a landscape, wildlife or the stars in the sky my worries in life just fade away. It is a very real experience for me. I just love the photographic medium for expressing what I love about life on Earth. A planet we take too much for granted." www.theedgeofthewoods.com
