The place this photograph was taken was literally cut off from the modern world, and getting there was almost a one way mission. It was late evening, the sun was edging toward the horizon, preparing to take its last breath before it dipped below the surface. I had been wrestling my way down a track that took off half the paint of my little 4WD and gave the suspension a test it was never designed for. I couldn’t turn around now. There was only one way. The narrow path ahead.

When I approached what seemed like a drop off, I got out and inspected a gaping ravine carved out of the track by possible floodwaters. Lacking the experience and confidence to tackle this, I prayed, and let my foot off the brake, somehow I managed to crawl down without rolling to a sense of relief mixed with the painstaking awareness that I’d made a grave mistake.

When I arrived on level ground at the entrance to the desert, I broke down and had an anxiety attack. Alone, dark, isolated, no contact, afraid. I thought my heart was going to stop. I honestly thought at one point, I wasn’t going to survive the night. I prayed earnestly for God to sustain me through that night, and He came with a blanket of peace that He pulled over me and allowed me to rest.

The next day, I walked about 10km, into the desert, and summited the highest sand dune.i could find. As I stood there, looking out over the golden curves, I admired the shapes that melted into a distant blue ocean. A soft breeze was at my back, I was thankful. Just to be present and exist, the simplest gratitude just permeating my once restless thoughts.

All of a sudden, a large black shadow completely covered me. Startled, I look up and see this, a huge Golden eagle hovering just a few feet above me, completely still, motionless in the wind, we locked eyes. In that moment, I felt like its gaze had penetrated my soul. I shuddered in emotion. I analyzed every detail in its feather covered expanse, the colors of gold, bronze, copper and earthy tones shon brilliantly as the early sun light burnished its raw beauty.

After a few moments, it slowly turned, keeping its eyes locked on me, then banked and allowed the wind to lift it up into the clear blue sky. It circled back, and revisited its position, riveting me with its presence once again. This time I lifted my camera, composed, and eternalized the moment.

Grateful. Though I was isolated, I was not alone. Though I was in a distant foreign land, I was acknowledged. Though I was a misunderstood soul, I was accepted.

Grace, power, beauty. Attributes of the one whom searches the depths of my heart, knows my innermost thoughts, and even though finds no good in me, still chooses to saturate me in His all encompassing loving presence.

For a fleeting moment, I became a stranger to the world, I was home.

Limited Editions Prints.

All Thurston Photo prints 20"x30" and up are one of 200 limited edition prints. Each LE print is accompanied by a hand signed certificate and edition number to authenticate its originality. 

“Waves are very beautiful and even symbolic, and I’m learning to see a lot more in a photograph than elegantly organised matter." The cooperation of light and water create a subject that compels me to seek something more profound and artistically inclined than that which my eyes reveal to me. When I’m immersed in nature, I see intelligent design, I see intentional energy and i see irrefutable purpose in every aspect of every detail, but above all this, I see a very clear, artistic flare woven through every living and moving thing."
