Some people think you don't need to leave the comfort of your own home to see the world. To them, looking at pictures on your computer is sufficient to get a handle on what the world has to offer. Photos definitely can open up new worlds, especially if the photographer is good, but they are no substitute for being there. This is a constant annoyance of mine, as sometimes I see things that I want to capture, but a camera (especially something as small as an iPhone camera) just isn't sufficient for the job. Such was the case this morning, as I found myself on a hill in the middle of the Willow Creek Open Space on a glorious morning with some amazing clouds, cool mountains, and lush green fields surrounding me. I took a bunch of pictures, and while I like this one I'm posting...it does a weak job actually conveying how amazing this hill felt this morning. Get out into the world and look around, don't let photographers do it for you.
