“Human subtelty will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does Nature, because in her inventions, nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous.”
Leonardo da Vinci

My “Artist Sense” has always been attracted to and delighted in the details of nature. For me they are every bit as amazing as the grand landscape.

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.” by Gerard De Nerval

Not far from my home is a field of daisies that grows next to a forest. I visit it each year and make photographs for hours. Each year I discover something new

“There is another alphabet, whispering from every leaf, singing from every river, shimmering from every sky.” ― Dejan Stojanovic

Just back from a week in the Smoky Mountains. I find the edges of the streams and rivers cutting through the forest and filled with boulders very both peaceful and artistically inspiring.

“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. ” Henry David Thoreau

I love hiking in the forest in deep fog. Sometimes finding images in these conditions can be difficult at first. This is especially true if you have a preconceived idea of what you will see and photograph.  I have found however, that if I accept the fog, the light and the obscured view, images abound….

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

― William Blake

Why do I photograph nature? I find great joy in discovering moments such as this in nature, and great satisfaction in sharing them. Maybe I can make someone’s day a little better as a result of sharing an image.

This morning while at one of my favorite sunrise spots, I considered a number of compositions. Then I decided to stand under the tree I was next to and use the overhanging limbs in the image.

There is a zone I strive for when creating photographs. It is probably similar to the zone athletes and other artists reach where time stops and there is only this moment…..

It is a wondrous place!

“See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…we need silence to be able to touch souls.”

~Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Another from my early morning wanderings…..
