Since I enjoyed my moving meditation in the park so much, I decided to do it again. I went in search of the Winter sun, I think I found it 🙂

Photography is a wonderfully mindful and grounding experience. You’re capturing the present moment. It brings you back to the present, for that moment you compose the shot, looking through your viewfinder and then pressing the button to take the photo. For that moment, you are focused on nothing other than what is in front of you. It’s special. It’s calming. It’s soothing and nurturing. It’s mindful. It’s meditation.

January can be a dull and dreary, hard month. It is cold and the days are often dark and grey. I had been watching for a crisp Winter’s sunny day so I could take my camera for a walk to our local park and capture the Winter sunshine. Once you start looking for that little piece of brightness, you see it everywhere.
