Hold on to what is good, Even if it's a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe, Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do, Even if it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life, Even if it's easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand, Even if someday I'll be gone away from you.

As the full moon sets the sky’s diamonds reveal themselves.
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.

There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other. That is what this photograph has become.... a living dream. This was photographed one night along the coastal Empire. I started shooting around 11pm and this is one of those all nighters that feel like you are living in a dream. I was standing waist deep on a high tide and on the left you can see the milkyway starting to show itself and on the right light pollution from a small town close by. I am blessed to shoot this type of work and I have done endless research of this area dating back to 2004. I am yearning to head back to the coast this spring to find myself on a remote beach like this one. Thank you to those of you that have supported my dreams and have helped them become a reality like this Photograph above... also  Thank you redbull for keeping me up so I can create works like this..

Lonely nights drinking redbull shooting all night long under the American Southwest Sky littered with billions of stars isn’t wasted time This massive stitched panorama shot away from the rest of the world was created by using LED light panels to "light paint" the under belly of this natural bridge of redrock. I waited and watched the full moon set which revealed the milkyway in all it’s glory here in desert filed with Peace and wonderment. good must conquer evil and truth will set me free So you see that somewhere I have found the key

This goes out to the music-makers, And you the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams. World-losers and world-forsakers, Upon whom the pale moon gleams; You movers and shakers.... dream on and let nothing hold you back..

Cheers

Douglas

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home

When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
