The road to 2017

I often photograph roads, for in them I find metaphor. You can see the way ahead, sometimes for a few months. After that the view is obscured. Perhaps we’re not meant to know, for that’s where trusting comes in.




As Edward Abbey said, “May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds…”


Above all my prayer for you in the New Year is that your road may lead you to the source of living waters. Have a great 2017!

  1. Beautiful thoughts and images. I love your thought about photographing roads and now realize that the images of roads I’ve done, and actually like, have the same correlation between what is in the photograph and life. You see only so much but when the road disappears, you are left to trust that it is heading somewhere good.

  2. I particularly enjoy your first image: to me roads, especially dirt roads, hold the promise of surprise, adventure and hark back to a time before traffic hurtled along the tarred lanes so fast that they miss what is alongside, be it a mountain or a mouse.
