Early Morning Sunrise Photoshoot In Sabino Canyon   1 comment

Leading a photo shoot in Sabino Canyon, February 19, 2015. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

A couple of weeks ago I received a call from Gene in Peoria, Arizona, expressing an interest in photographing sunrise in Sabino Canyon. He and five others wanted to get an early start (6:30 am) to be ready for a sunrise photo shoot. Not being familiar with the canyon, Gene asked if a naturalist could lead his group to a good location. Seeing a good opportunity to shoot sunrise in the canyon myself, I agreed to lead them to a location overlooking the Sabino Canyon dam area. 

Yesterday morning we met in front of the Sabino Canyon Visitors Center where I met Gene, Phil, and John, minus three of the group who chose to pass on the early morning shooting. What a great way to start the day!

Albert Einstein believed we suffer from an “optical delusion”
which separated us from the rest of creation. His solution?

“Widen our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Life is short

who Knows?
the time
