Landscape Photography | Chasing a Dream
In 2016 I made an image at this little lake in the cascade mountains of Oregon, that could be the most unique landscape photo I’ve ever made. And while I do like this photo of a lake that drains through a hole, I’ve always felt it could be better, in better light, in better weather, with better camera gear.
So I keep returning to this little lake that disappears every summer and returns with the rains of winter, chasing a dream, a dream that may never become reality, hoping to recreate a better version of that image I made so long ago.
Each time I return, the photograph I want to make is not there, instead this little lake shows me something else, reveals a little more, so each time I leave with a better understanding of this lake and the possibilities that landscape photography can bring only by returning over and over.
