Honestly, I can hardly believe this photograph turned out so well. It is magic. Rob and I had been hunting all day and when we arrived back at camp, I looked out at the moonrise and the delicate palate of the sunset in the sky and I had a vision. I set up my camera and remote and literally galloped out across the sand dunes to get this photograph.
The moon. My friend. I have no reason to fear the dark.
We have been in New Mexico for nearly two weeks, hunting quail and being a family and camping and living rough and working our beautiful, steadfast dogs in incredible country. It is the joy of my heart to be here. The joy of my heart. I think it’s because it is the joy of my heart, truly, that I was able to make a photograph like this (and many more that I look forward to sharing with you). I believe in creating from the light, from joy, from emotions that are rooted in beauty. It is from those places I experience a true welling up of originality.
I just had a hot shower for the first time in nine days and it was SUBLIME.
