After retiring to beautiful Kiawah Island (South Carolina, USA) in 2000, she revisited her love for the lens and fully-embraced the world of digital cameras and creative post-processing....

As part of her series Liz asked if we could write about our challenges when finding beauty. As wildlife/nature photographers our search for beauty takes us to places off the beaten path and often we are the only humans in view. Our ‘studio’ is in the marshes and swamps of the Lowcountry in South Carolina,... Continue Reading →

REBLOG : Right now I long to launch out on a new stage in my life’s journey; to not settle for the status quo. To any other restless souls out there I hope you enjoy reading this poem as much as I did.
Hunger Is Not A Harbour by D.B. Donnelly
to all that is new,
to all I have not yet seen,
attracted to the covered corners
the light can not carve comfort into…
to all I don’t yet know,
to all I have not yet called by name,
haunted by the houses not yet home
and the whispers not yet known…
but what of where I have been,
what of the comfort once created,
what of the stories already told,
what of the lives I held once,
for a time,
in my hold?
Am I bold
to this running,
this longing to be always
up and leaving,
for this constant craving,
for another corner to caress creation,
to suppress starvation?
But hunger is not a harbour,
it is not where still waters rest, still.
It is the rest…
into the crest, craving,
rushing up and over,
always and ever…
