Description

A stag raises it’s head, scans for danger, pauses mid step, sees you watching… in that pause a connection is made, you cannot look away, you hold your breath. For the rest of the day that moment stays with you, you see the world more clearly, notice all the beauty surrounding you. This portrait is a reminder of the power of the natural world to move us and help us to see and feel more deeply. It is a call to tread lightly upon the earth and be joyful.
