Alone in the Winter Canyon with demons and angels

Photography has helped me create my own autobiography, I cannot separate the important moments in my life with some of the images I have taken along the way. I took this image in the mountains of Spain, a place that helped me in the search for myself when I was a young man and also helped me heal on the starting of my new life. I read what this image brought to my mind and I get transported to some of the most amazing moments of my whole life, alone, surrounded by perfection with my mind spinning trying to maneuver my way through the nightmare life had suddenly become.

I walked through the frozen valley surrounded by monsters, looking down at me, like nightmares of the months past, nightmares of ugly images, images of lifeless love. I walked in solitude, in silence, through the frozen white eternity, through the canyons of my youth. I walked with my thoughts hurting my heart. I felt the cold, I felt the loneliness, the quiet paths, frozen but pure. I walked in silence surrounded by my music, my tears frozen, my breath heavy, my mind restless. I walked in silence. And through the hours of discovery, I felt something, I felt an energy coming from inside me, a flame that warmed my spirit and the monsters became angels, and the frozen valleys became paths to new dreams. And the pure snow became warm, became a sign of peace. And the silence broke with sounds of running rivers, the sounds of waterfalls, the sounds of good memories. And I looked at her in my mind and her eyes brought me happiness, her voice told me about all the dreams we lived together and the angels got jealous, and the angels brought the dusk into us and I had to turn around, but I turned around with images of her, with a smile in my face. And the frozen tears were left behind and they will melt in the spring with memories as pure as the snow I walked through that day. And I ran away, down the frozen valley afraid of the monsters in my head, and when I arrived at the beginning of my journey I looked back and I said goodbye, and I hoped the monsters would stay there, in the cold frozen valleys of my youth. I will come back, and hopefully the monsters will once more transform into the angels I always dream of.
