Throwback time: Image - Grounded in Green

Not this February, and maybe not this year, throwback time is space dedicated to unearthing recent or dusty memories and rediscovering forgotten gems from my photographic past. It's a chance to revisit simpler times, relive cherished moments, and maybe even cringe a little at my questionable editing choices.

There are countless other incredible photos on my site waiting to be discovered. So, keep your eyes peeled, explore my recent and featured photography galleries, and don't be afraid to share the images that move you with others. After all, the beauty of photography lies in its ability to connect us all through the universal language of visual storytelling.
