Creative mindfulness nature photography will take you on daily adventures and discoveries.
It does require a practice of observing and photographing in silence.
“Wondering” in Silence
(“Wondering” is the act of feeling wonder in response to nature)
a person can maintain an inner connection and a soft-focus outward.
Spending time in silence has been found in many spiritual practices across time.
One cannot hear while speaking, and in the woods or out in nature it is extremely important to engage in deep listening. As your hearing begins to attune to the birds and the wind, your other senses will soon follow in sharp succession.
At present, silence in our daily lives is a rare commodity. Many of us seek out vacations to “get away” from “IT ALL;” and often “IT ALL” means the noise and commotion of our everyday lives.
Stepping into the woods and onto a beloved trail allows your silent focus to turn inward onto the breath. Something magic begins to unfold. By doing this one act, you may find yourself sinking deeply inward, while observing the colors, forms and textures around you come alive.
