Sping! Who can resist the fresh colors of bright green, yellow, blue and so many more?
I was up and out the door early this morning. When I first woke up and looked out the window I was bummed because it was a cloudy morning. I resigned to getting my cup of coffee, throw a blanket over me and slowly wake up. To my surprise after about ten minutes it began to clear up. I quickly got up put my shoes on and headed outdoors to catch the colors as the sun came up.
I knew right where I was going to go. I had spotted this place of trees of different kinds, sizes and colors that were a perfect setting against a wooded area with beautiful blue sky in the background. As I walked out to shoot what I thought would be an awesome photo, I stumbled upon these three settings. As it turned out the shot I wanted did not impress me as much as these did. That happens a lot to me.
Maybe there is a live lesson for me here....
I especially love this third one.
Oh spring! I love the newness of this season!
Would you like a photo of mine? Email me for information!
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.
