A gallery of the finalists
Here is a gallery of the 31 photographs that will be hanging in my upcoming show (Central Vermont Medical Center, January 20-March 20). Enjoy!
I think the April waxing crescent moon, hung in a blue scrim evening sky, complements the Black Locust perfectly. It is a scene I always look forward to seeing—luckily it is just down the street!
Hoarfrost on a leaf of Red Oak (Quercus rubra). The trick here was to not exhale while focusing!
I don’t know when I first began to look at and see new ice forming, but I’ve not tired of doing so yet! The 3-dimensional crystals that form and reflect the sky and refract what is in or under the ice provide endless variations of “ice art.” I am particularly fond of this one, reminescent of an Oriental painting, with a stem of grass trapped in the ice.
One of my great pleasures in life is watching the transitions of the seasons. The leaves of a Red Oak (Quercus rubra) under a dusting of snow will miraculously connect the lovely reddish-borwns of late fall to hundreds of shades of green of next Spring when the tree pushes forth new leaves.
There are many times when what I see through my viewfinder seems impossible. This photo (and several others I made the same day) of fall foliage reflected in the water of a small stream left me breathless.
I made this photograph on the same day and in the same location as yesterday’s post, just a few feet further upstream with different trees in the background and a different kind of water ripple.
I so enjoy seeing the world reflected in water. This was a special day in Amsterdam where the buildings and blue sky and the capricious wind currents over the canals all created a “painting” I think would have fascinated many of that city’s artists.
Underwater sand formations and a passing speed boat make a perfect composition, all from 20,000 feet in the air just off the coast of South Florida.
