This image is also available at Lois Bryan at fine art america in an exciting variety of framing and matting options.

Image taken with the Nikon D40x, using the 18-200mm VR Nikkor lens and the cp filter on January 3, 2009. This shot was taken along 689, near Osterburg PA. I used PhotoMatix to create this HDR image.

Sweet, Sweet Surrender

“Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Travelled by many remembered by few
Lookin’ for something that I can believe in
Lookin’ for something that I’d like to do with my life

There’s nothin’ behind me and nothin’ that ties me
To somethin’ that might have been true yesterday
Tomorrow is open and right now it seems to be more
Than enough to just be there today

And I don’t know what the future is holdin’ in store
I don’t know where I’m goin’, I’m not sure where i’ve been
There’s a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the livin’, don’t need to see the end

Sweet, sweet surrender
Live, live without care
Like a fish in the water
Like a bird in the air"

John Denver

Sweet Surrender

Driving through the countryside Saturday, January 3rd, I deliberately took a wrong turn and passed by this beautiful farm. The words to John Denver’s song, one of my all-time favorites, filled my heart. Click on the link to listen … then come back and visit with me a bit!!!
