The Yukon light

As a photographer, I pay extra attention to the quality of the light wherever I go. The Arizona desert sunsets are unreal. The Utah rainstorm skies are the most amazing I ever saw. The Costa Rica early morning light is amazing and the way the light beams penetrate the Oregon Coastal forests is something I will never forget. But the Yukon light is just unique. The summer evening light, of course, but also the winter sun that hangs just above the horizon, casting its warm glow over the frozen landscape…

It’s all about the light. It’s always about the light.

The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it. It’s our fear of the dark that casts our joy into the shadows. ~ Brené Brown

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ~ Brené Brown
