Stephen Durrenberger, Hurricane Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement I have been doing photography for many years but the ability to see the results so quickly from digital photography has helped me improve dramatically. I now spend much of my spare time combing the countryside for potential stunning images. I love to photograph birds, flowers, butterflies and other insects, but also spend a great deal of time looking for a special view of a familiar scene or landmark. When I've captured the right image, I can't wait for others to see it so they might see the beauty that is in the world around us. As a psychiatrist by day, I hear of sadness and pain so frequently that my treks into the wilderness to capture images become like my own personal therapy where I can convene with nature, and appreciate the love of God through his amazing world and unparalleled beauty that he has given us all!
