Wilderness

I used a window of opportunity during a break in some insane rain we got today and headed down to Palmyra Nature Cove. Two deer met me near the beginning of the trails, and stood still as I crept close enough to capture a decent image. It’s fascinating how such “wilderness” creatures can live so…

Lent is an introspective season 1, and Photography can be a…
