An Epiphany can be described as a brief view into something that is greater than usual reality. These images were the result of painstaking trial and error. The camera is purposely moved during a longer exposure, while focus and zoom are randomly adjusted. 99% of the exposures are throwaway, the remaining 1% have that certain "something" that make them standout - the epiphany of the creative process.
Impressionistic/abstract views of the rural countryside of Eastern Washington State.
Roses, as a study of individuality. Each flaunts its own personality. Each shines forth in its own inner and outer beauty.
The more graceful side of an otherwise sharp and prickly plant. Subjects shot in soft, even light with minimal depth of field using a tilt-shift lens with extension tube.
I find trees are beautiful in all seasons. Even in winter, stripped bare, the flow and form of their branches evoke a simple and somber kind of grace.
