For a fun experiment I will be posting three images each day for three days. These were from a recent trip to the Redwoods Parks in California.

“Nature is not only what is visible to the eye – it also presents the inner pictures of the soul – the images on the reverse side of the eye.” (Edvard Munch)

 

When I explore the smaller details of nature with my camera I am in reality experiencing the moment fully and expressing that experience as an image.

Human subtlety 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.

The artist in me is drawn to water. It is formless and shapeless while assuming all of the shapes and forms it flows into. It reflects the environment and reveals secrets hidden beneath its’ surface.

One of the most rewarding things about the art of photography for me lies in finding a new and different way of seeing the familiar. One day in late fall I was wandering around a small waterfall. I stopped for a moment to absorb and observe the moment. I stood there  mesmerized by the sound and the motion. Gradually this composition evolved before me and I was moved to create this image.

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.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”

― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

From a trip I took to the Grand Tetons a few years ago.

On my travels this month I made a stop at Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area. It had been several years since I had visited. It was like seeing an old friend again.
