helpless…from my favorite place

Hiking in the  mountains of northern colorado,  I sometimes felt helpless, besides blissful. Nature presented a breathless beauty, which I could never really capture with a camera. However pretty the pictures may look, the nature is ALWAYS much, much, much more beautiful than the pictures. The more beautiful it is, the more difficult it is to capture or represent it. Seems like it is easier to make ugly things look beautiful in photography. Maybe that’s why photographs of death, wars, diseases and abandoned places, those ugly things that humans try to flee, usually get prizes and awards?
