FOR WHAT IS IT TO DIE,
BUT TO STAND IN THE SUN
AND MELT INTO THE WIND"

Kahlil Gibran

This photo was taken while driving from the Painted Desert and towards the Petrified Forest in Arizona (USA). It was a really enchanting area, I felt as though I was looking at terrain that could be seen on another planet. I am sure geologists and scientists explore these areas for remnants and signs that reveal our planet’s ancient past.

I use a Lumix point and shoot dijital camera

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.
