December 20, 2011: The Heart & The Heavy

This was a image I had to make. It burned in my mind for months and I could not get it out until it had been created. The night before the sunrise shoot I could barely sleep. In the field during winter with frost bitten toes, I raced against the sun. The backdrop of home is where I am most inspired; where the country lies within me. Holding my home tightly to me with great love and heavy burden.

When all was said and done, after the shutter had opened and closed and the last click of the mouse during post processing was finished, I could rest at last. It is images like this that keep me going. It reaffirms that I was born to do this and I cannot live without creating.
