Once again, if nature provides the subject, who am I to not document the beauty?

Icy Abstract

Nature is so amazing and if you keep your eyes open, you never know what you might see.

Fluidity

I am constantly amazed by the wonderful fluid and organic shapes nature creates.  When wind and movable particles work together, the results can be absolutely stunning.  Whether walking along a road, a beach or an open field, I feel as though I am walking through the world’s largest art gallery.  Come spring, the exhibition closes and we wait till the following winter to see a whole new exhibit of wonders provided free of charge to the viewer.

Fragile Moments

IMG_6853-Edit-2

Spotting the simple aspects of nature requires a keen sense of awareness in the moment. I discovered this fragile bit of ice close to melting away on a warm, early spring afternoon.  Shortly after taking the shot, I broke through the ice on Lake Superior.  Lucky for me I was close to shore and the water was shallow.  In the moment, my first concern was for my camera, which I was able to keep safe and set on a rock as I extricated myself from the ice.
