When was the last time you just stopped and took time to appreciate the small things in life?
There's been some significant changes in my life in recent years, and I have become more and more aware of the little things in life such as the scenery around me, trees, the weather etc. I made a promise to myself to get out with the camera more often and just photograph the world around me. It's been a lot "easier" because I recently moved to a beautiful part of New Zealand, so I decided to take some time-lapse photos of exactly the same spot over several weeks.
As I sit here typing this post, I can look out of the window and see how the cloud is hanging on the tops of the hill, I can hear the birds singing and see the cows grazing in the field. My partner has lived here for 16 years but she says it is wonderful to see it all as if "new" through my eyes.
We get very caught up in our lives but it is so important to stop and take time for our soul by connecting with nature again.
