A trip to the lake

I’ve been stuck in a rut in the middle of a storm while at the same time consumed with this impenetrable fog. Needless to say, things have been a little rocky. It’s started to get better though and I’m slowly gaining clarity. This camera has been a large part of that.

There’s something about the outdoors that encourages spirit, creativity, and renewal; all things that I really need right now.
