a Snowy Egret dances across the reflection of a sunset...
This work became an attempt to capture the feeling of being
surrounded by the sometimes gentle, but always prevailing,
forces of nature.
As darkness reaches out with its arms around you, and you
feel the ripples of the lake rolling underneath the boat,
the air turning cool, it all becomes a reminder of how fragile
our existence truly is. A simple thread in the incalculable
vastness of nature. How dependent upon the natural earth,
we truly are...
To capture the experience and pictures I needed for this design;
I ended up going back up a very long and narrow tributary
in full dark, in my boat, with only a small floodlight…
