“FROM BLISSFUL PEAK TO TRANQUIL SEA
THE WORLD IN SPLENDOR LIES
BESEECHING SOULS TO GAZE ON HER,
THROUGH HOPEFUL DREAMING EYES”

Wes Fessler

We were in Santa Cruz , California (USA) for a few days in June after gong to a funeral in San Francisco. Watching the surfers catching waves was such an energising and blissful sight.
Those figures on the water are surfers who wait patiently for the right wave so that can glide into shore. It was a moment in time where one feels so vitalized.

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 9 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.
