Common Dandelions (Taraxacum officinale)

Siebenthaler Fen, Beavercreek, Ohio

"There is nothing more beautiful than the silence of nature.” - Nina Hrusa

My thirst to learn and discover never stopped me. Before having a car, I would walk as far as possible with my gear strapped to my back. I made a point to arrive here at the fen early one September morning. The fog lifted itself slowly and carefully as it left mist and dew on top of the boardwalk. Rainfall from a previous day warped these fully bloomed dandelions to the point of no recovery.

My earliest photo opportunities were merely capturing on the merit of what stood out to me. If something caught my interest then I wanted to photograph it. Even as my knowledge and experience has improved in a few years. I still hold this childlike wonder of what awes me. Photography in general is boiled down to having a light instrument and pointing it at something, press the shutter. Sometimes the simplest things are what we enjoy the most.
