This photo of the sun peeking through the leaves sends me a message of
hope, never give up on hope and faith. Always look for the light.
"I am a simple person that enjoys the simple pleasures in life, like family and friends. My faith keeps me grounded and gives me hope. I grew up in a small southern town in northern Alabama where I reside today. My strong point in photography is landscapes, wildlife, nature and abstracts. Although I enjoy photographing anything that catches my eye. The art that I create is driven by emotion. I am inspired by nature and imagination but more so inspired by love, happiness, and disappointment. Every bit of it is fuel I use to ignite my creativeness." - Lesa Nivens
I took this shot in Hollywood Alabama, my home town.
When I look at this photo it says family to me, because the nails
that are driven into the wood are to remain there forever together.
I took this shot while visiting Strawberry Arizona in the winter of 2017
on a cold but beautiful snowy day.
