This post was adapted from a story I read by Stephen King. It was intended for writers but I changed it up to make it work for photographers.

It’s a love/hate relationship that is so up and down because it is a place that reminds me (regularly) that as a bird photographer, I rarely have ANY control over the conditions I work in.
