These dark snow clouds were coming in over Lake Michigan last week. I couldn't help but be both amazed and excited about catching these clouds as they slowly covered the sun. This made for some great lighting effects on both the water and the clouds. Don't you think the water almost looks like snow on the ground?
The top photo show the sun shining through that single cloud. Wow!
Just remember as we trudge through many cloudy days this winter wishing for sunshine...these days can be beautiful too!
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
