Without the participation of intuition, sensibility, and understanding, photography is nothing. All these faculties must be closely harnessed, and it is then that the capture of a rare picture becomes a real physical delight (Henri Cartier-Bresson).


Life is so full of little enjoyable occurancies we often stop noticing at our day-to-day frenetic pace. That’s why every now and then I like to step outdoors with my camera hanging from the shoulder. Nowhere else as on nature, a timeless muse, you can feel so sensitive to the beauty of the surrounding world. Either unusual patterns found in leaves or Zen-like calmness of water, all natural scenes and landscapes have a story to share. Take a minute and get your moment of delight. All photographs are taken with Canon EOS 100 D.
