However, when it came to photographing this tree it wasn't so obvious to me. I just couldn't get the picture right. It has been a year of trying different angles and different point of views with nothing working for me. Until one recent morning.
I almost missed the sight; I was focused on getting out the gate and on the road to Noli Beach. Then I remembered that I didn't loosen up before I left the house, so I stopped and stepped into the shade of some palm trees, began loosening up. I looked over at the big tree; the sun was perfect...I was finally able to get the photo that I had struggled all year to capture.
It took time. It took a whole year. It took slowing down, stopping and looking up. Then the connection was made. An image recorded. A message began to be whispered internally.
