Re: A Thousand Stars In The Sky By Len Backus
I think anyone who has ever visited this site and seen your photography would agree that you have an eye for it. I would venture to guess that your heart is in it too wich is probably why your tallent is so easily recognisable.
As hunters and lovers of the outdoors its sometimes easier to put on a tough front. The ''I can do anything and go anywhere'',and ''no challenge is too great to see whats on the other side of the mountain'' attitude only half describes the heart of an outdoorsman. Im glad to see that there are some other folks that are almost floored by the greatness surrounding you in the mountains, and how that feeling can be related in some way to those most important to you. ie; wife/kids etc.
I have never been accused of being ''eloquent'', but you pretty-well nailed what many of us have felt, but have no words to describe, when we take the time to take it all in. The memories, and feelings start to flood in. Thanks for sharing.
P.S. I loved the picture,as much as the write up. The ''horsehead'' rock formation centered at the bottom of the photo (in the water) just adds to the whole thing! GREAT JOB on the photo Len.
