Above it All

Haleakala National Park
Hawaii, USA

This was to be “one of those moments!” On top of the mountain I waited, contemplating all the ‘stuff’ that was going on back at the studio thousands of miles and an ocean away; worried about what was and wasn’t getting done; were we being beaten out by someone else, what was happening!

The fog crept in and softly blanketed the mountain tops below me, “Amazing!” went through my mind as I prepared to still this moment; but the light meter had died. I was literally in the dark and there was no way for me to calculate the proper exposure! “You have to be kidding me!”, was the thought that went through my mind.

It was in that moment that I somehow transcended all of it, “it” being the issues going on externally in my life and at that moment. Somehow I found myself above it all, and in a sense just didn’t care about any of it. It was going to be there for me this time and I was OK with that. After careful consideration of what the exposure “might” be I made my best guess and tripped the shutter.

Sometimes we need to be “Above it All” and I’ve decided I’m going to try to spend a little more time there especially after experiencing this moment.

See Ya On the Trail!
