The place I live in Northern California inspires me to take photos often. My home is about 30 minutes from San Francisco, five minutes away from San Francisco Bay. Mother Nature is quite the artist and she will take the camera into her hands for you.
I still long from time to time for wide, open spaces like a sailor who wants to be back at the sea. Trips to them give me peace of mind. Time seems to stand still and be endless in Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico. That's where you can see thousands of stars on a clear night and feel like you're a part of it all.
