"Nature, as my inspiration brings to mind the passage of time and the tension between being and doing in life and in art. There are moments of perfect light on water or foliage or snow that make me want to rush to grab my camera. Yet I know from experience that the instant will be gone before I click the shutter and I will have missed the experience altogether. The alternative is to simply try to commit it to memory, savoring the moment, luxuriating in nature as I let it sink into me." Susanne Meterko
