First Look Photo: Seeds

November 9, 2016

The election is finally over, and like it or not, Trump won.  However we look at the situation, it is history now.  Regardless of this election, or any other situation in our lives, we hold the key to our own individual futures.

Today’s picture is not about the election results, or things happening in other parts of the world.  Today is a visual reminder that we contain our own seeds of the future, and it’s up to us to plant them where we need.

First Look Photo: First Frost

This week, here in Portland, Maine we saw the first frost of the season.  I consider that a great time to get a few foliage shots.

Here’s one I got as a result.

Photo Friday: Heart of the Sun

September 23, 2016

There are  many artists who share their vision of beauty in canvas stone and music.  These forms of art are creative, and can be extremely beautiful, but no piece of art can compare to the beauty nature brings us.

Our job as nature photographers is not to create the art.  It is our job to show others the beauty that most people miss, by training our minds to focus on nature, and to be willing to go where most people would never go.  To make it even simpler, nature photographers have to look at a forest, and bring out the raccoon sitting in a tree.

Today’s photo is not a raccoon.  I saw a sunflower the other day, and while it was very striking, I was more drawn in by pattern in the middle of it, so that is what I brought to this picture.
