Hello everyone. Welcome to my thirteen installment of my creative world that I call Resonance Reflection Photography. My name is Marcel Comeau, and I'm a landscape photographer based in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Each week I post my work online for the world to see and enjoy. This week's photo was taken out outside of Ladysmith at Stocking Creek Waterfall. The day started off with little drizzles of rain that would come and go, giving me a chance to have a break away from the wet weather. I'd seen great pictures of this area, and by the time I arrived at the river that leads to the waterfall, I wasn't disappointed. The overcast weather gave off soft lighting over the landscape. As much as I enjoy the sun and the bright blue sky, there's nothing like a grey day over a brightly colored piece of nature. As I was taking long exposure shots of the smaller waterfall, I admired the creation the running water had molded through time. It reminded me that there are things in life that require time and perseverance with consistent work to gain results. When you take shortcuts, there's a strong possibility you'll attain very little in return, you get in return relative to the amount of effort you dedicated to the practice. Make the conscious choice of doing what's necessary for your journey to flourish, even if it means taking a moment in your life and focusing on minuscule tasks that seem redundant at the present moment. Those little steps become a part of the momentum that'll propel you towards where you're standing now to the objective you want to reach. Again, thank you so much for taking the time to listen to me, and I hope to hear from you soon. Take care.
