Nature is my Inspiration!

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

I admire nature and I find myself constantly drawn back to photograph it in all its forms.

The Natural World

“Study Nature. Love Nature. Stay close to Nature. It will never fail you.”

This landscape was shot at Yellowstone National Park this summer. I was amazed how these trees had dried up and changed colors due to the geothermal activity in that area; still holding the curves in their branches.

Today Photography 101 says: Capture a moment, big or small, and pay attention to the lines and curves produced by nature.

Sunday Stills: Shallow Depth of Field

What is a Shallow Depth of Field (DOF)? Well it is basically having your subject in focus in the foreground and blurring out the background.

This flower was photographed at Bellevue Botanical Garden this Autumn and is my entry for Sunday Stills Photography this week.
