Magical Skies

When the lakes are calm, they become mirrors, reflecting the real world above, creating magical effects to dazzle the eye and mind.

Pt. 4, Breaking Rules

When I started working with this image, I almost passed it by.  But, something about it kept calling me back.  I realized that it breaks some of the traditional rules I’ve learned in photography.  It’s heavily weighted to one side, making it awkward and out of balance.  It sort of follows the rules of thirds, maybe.  But the texture of the concrete is intriguing and adds its own value to the composition.  Compared to the metal support moving to the right, the concrete actually appears soft.  The metal erupting out of the concrete is well defined and rigid, and giving a sense of launching into space.  But, that’s just my interpretation, you may see it very differently.

Evidence of Winter Winds #1

Our northern winters can be downright brutal at times.  But that doesn’t mean that all beauty has left us, nature always finds a way to offer up art to the masses.
