A very windy/stormy day here in Oregon. This is my vision of bringing the windy day inside the studio. The storm is softened through the eyes of my lens.
Dark and refreshing with a silver lining blowing in the wind.
This is a story of watching the watchers.
In the misty morning
In the quietness of the cold-
a pair so bold.
The composition has a touch of voyeurism in the layering – which saved it from deletion. It was so cold this pair of American Wigeons had frost covering them.
We are islands to each other
Building hopeful bridges
On a troubled sea
Some are burned or swept away
Some we would not choose
But we’re not always free
Writer(s): Geddy Lee, Neil Peart, Alex Lifeson
When the ebbing tide retreats
Along the rocky shoreline
It leaves a trail of tidal pools
In a short-lived galaxy
Each microcosmic planet
A complete society
2018 is about not being a casual observer in my photography. My role of detective involves looking at the scene and finding relationships. I am comfortable sharing the process while I look for objects in the scene: line, tone, color, and presenting the boldness of emotion that I felt as I experienced the scene.
This is my journey.
Out early taking a few shots in ten degree weather. After we decided my fingers would not work anymore and His face was stinging we headed to get warm in the car. As we drove out of the natural area the sun had just begun share it’s warmth. I saw the magic from the car and had to get out and capture the glistening sun. I could have stayed for hours more in this wonderland.
