Abstracted Frozen Patterns

The pond down the street from my house froze a few weeks ago when the temps dipped into the single digits. I got out onto the ice and discovered a few abstracts….

I couldn’t resist sharing another powerful way to use a tilt/shift lens. To create this image of Split Bow Arch at Big South Fork National Recreation area I used a 24mm tilt/shift lens.
I used the shift function to take three images one each, shifted right center and left, respectively. Once back on the computer I stitched them together with the panorama tool in photoshop.

After wading up a stream for a 100 yards or so I came upon this scene. It is moments like these that make it clear to me that I am living the dream!

I love hiking and being in the outdoors. Frankly, I even enjoy hikes that are strenuous. The hiking and physical part of getting to the locations that I photograph adds to the richness of the experience and clears my mind, setting the stage for the creative process to begin.  With that in mind here is an image I created when everything finally came together. And here is a Iphone photograph of the trail I hiked 6 times over 2 days seeking the right light.

I was photographing in early spring in the Texas Hill country and I became fascinated by the abstract patterns that were being created and changed almost instantly by the wind. The wind can create problems for photography but it can also create opportunities!

Today I printed a 40×60 gallery wrapped canvas print of this image for a client. It has been a popular abstract With my clients and is one of my  personal favorites. So I wanted to take a few minutes to share it with you. Visualizing a deeply three dimensional scene such as this as a two dimensional abstract photograph is exciting to me. Then composing and creating the image and finally to see it output as a massive print to share with others is thrilling! I created this image while hiking at the bottom of a gorge in Big South Fork National Recreation area in Tennessee.

I had my eye on this Gingko tree for several days before the right conditions presented themselves for this photograph. The tree fairly glowed in the heavy fog at sunrise and I had only a few minutes to set up and get the image. Within 5-6 minute the fog burned off and this special moment was gone.

I spent several mornings this summer photographing in a field of sunflowers. I arrived at sunrise and wandered among them looking for different compositions. After spending an hour or so going for the obvious images, I would  begin to seek out images that challenged my thinking and revealed aspects of the flowers that was a bit different.
