Spring on the lake. The count down continues...
Yep...it won't be long and I won't have the luxury of having instant access to this beautiful lake. These photos represent my favorite time of day here. Early morning. There is nothing like that first cup of coffee first thing in the morning sitting in silence for a time of meditation and prayer. This particular morning all I could hear were birds singing and the gentle sounds of the water coming up on shore. The warm sun coming up from the east casting shadows from the trees behind, and the sun creating a reflection on the lake to make the horizon line disappear blending the water and sky, made for a few beautiful photos this particular morning.
Enjoy your day where ever you are today. It's going to be a beautiful one here in West Michigan!
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.
