Ed Lehming Photography


“As I wander the forest, immersed in her peace and comfort, I realize that what makes this place filled with life so precious, is that I am also among friends.” – Ed Lehming While I was reviewing images from my latest hike, I came across this image and spent some time considering it. It’s not something I typically do, looking up among the towering pines. This day, however, the wind was quite… Read More

“Even the most mundane can become a thing of beauty, if we but expect it” – Ed Lehming Surprisingly, this is my first post this year and the first in over a month.
