Spending time in nature and observing my surroundings in solitude and silence are my preferred ways to re-charge my batteries and clear my mind. A photography project combined with a hike or a bike ride not only allows me to be physically active but also to patiently sit and quietly observe while waiting for just the right light. Seeing the sunrise from the top of a mountain peak after a strenuous early morning hike - I can't think of a better way to start the day. Nature has so much to offer.
