Top 10 Pictures of 2013
#5 – Stop Light
I was stopped at a traffic light, I look to my right and I see this…a picture perfect pasture on a early fall day with healthy, happy horses enjoying their lunch. I am happy to say this picture almost didn’t happen. It almost didn’t happen because I was too busy enjoying the “live” moment to think to take a picture. The light turned and I woke up to the fact that I was about to be taken away from this view and I didn’t want to leave. I didn’t want to leave behind the moment of quiet and beauty and nature. I didn’t want to leave behind the feeling of the sun on my face and the image before me. How long is a traffic stop – 30 seconds maybe? In 30 seconds I fell in love, I fell in love with a dozen horses and my opportunity to appreciate them. Looking at it now, and why this made my top 10, I am moved by the reminder of just how little time it takes to witness something you don’t ever want to let go of.
