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 only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.  ~John Muir

This image was created while exploring the structure of this plant on a hillside  one morning. I take as much joy in these macro explorations as I do in my larger scale nature photographic treks.

Waves on the beach at Sanibel Island #51107_32

Abstract nature images have been a large part of my fine art photographic work  for quite some time. This abstract seascape entitled Ocean Tones was mentioned in a blog  post on Erinn•V•Style.

Erinn Valencich is a world class designer who has appeared on many television programs including the View and HGTV.

You can read  her comments about the image HERE. Erinn’s showroom in California is exquisite and we are honored to be a part of it. Below is a photograph of the image framed and hanging in the showroom.

“I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.” Confucian scholar Zhou Duny

I have mentioned before, I am drawn to photograph water lotus and water lilies flowers and leaves. In preparing some lotus images for a client I decided to do a little research on the water lotus and discovered some interesting facts:

The plant is an aquatic perennial. Under favorable circumstances its seeds may remain viable for many years, with the oldest recorded lotus germination being from that of seeds 1300 years old recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern China. It is often mistaken for a water lily. The lotus is a completely different plant unrelated to the water lily.

In has many uses for food. In Asian cultures the roots, leaves, and flowers are used in many recipes as garnishes, teas, medicines and soups, just to name a few.

From ancient times the lotus flower has been a divine symbol in many Asian traditions.

Whenever we are outside, it’s easy to acknowledge the beauty of nature.  We can see it, feel it, hear it and touch it.  But once we move indoors we easily forget about it.  A good way to bring some of that beauty inside where we need it most is to buy nature photography to hang on the walls of our homes and offices.

Not only will this allow us more time to appreciate the wonders of the natural world, but it can also help us to decorate our rooms to bring out their best features.  By arranging just the right piece or pieces of art in just the right way, we can alter the perception of a room’s size and shape to create the effect we want.

For example, if you have a small, square room and you want to create the illusion of more length, you can do it with pictures.  One way to do this is to arrange several pictures in a horizontal line on one wall of the room.  This will help to make the room feel longer, but that isn’t the only thing that’s important; the subject of the pictures has an effect on this as well.  That is where natural photography plays its role.  There are so many natural subjects that contain strong horizontal lines that can help to accentuate the feeling of extended length.  Some examples of natural art with strong horizontal lines might be  a sunset or sunrise, an ocean or beach front, a mountain range, or even a field or meadow.

Likewise, prints with strong vertical lines will give the appearance of higher ceilings in a room where the ceilings are low.  Again, natural art prints work very well with subjects such as trees, lighthouses, or even something as simple and dramatic as a single tall flower.

On the flip side, if you have a room that is long and narrow and you want it to appear more square, you can do this quite effectively with art as well.  In fact, large natural prints can pull this illusion off in a very dramatic manner.  Simply hang a large framed print on one of the end walls of the narrow room.  This will instantly appear to bring that wall in closer to create a cozier feel within the room.  A large field of flowers or any type of landscape works especially well for this.

So the next time you going to be doing some redecorating, be sure to buy natural art photography for those rooms that need some improvement!  By using these types of photos for decorating, not only are you bringing a bit of the outdoors in, but you are also giving yourself the opportunity to enjoy nature a little more while we making your living spaces feel more inviting.
