Fine Art Collection


Some of my favorite subjects are the weathered remnants of this pier. For years these great timbers have greeted and parted the incoming and outgoing tides. The sea’s salty caress has eroded and chipped away at these once sturdy wooden goliaths. Yet still they remain through wind, rain, storms, low, and high tides. Maybe I spend too much time observing and thinking of how these old weary wooden stakes remind me of life….or maybe I should spend more time here just enjoying the lady of the sea as she constantly caresses and quietly takes from everything she touches. When she is peaceful, she conveys such a wonderful sense of calm and harmony. And when she is furious, she brings such a sense of perspective at just how small we really are in the grand scheme of life and nature. Still, I find it most theraputic to watch aas she slowly erases the lines in the sand, cleans and heals the scars on her shores. And, brings a fresh start to everything she touches.
Maybe, I should not sip as much wine while I am photographing seascapes…lolol !!
Have a safe (and peaceful) Easter Weekend everyone.

Coastal twilight can be so peaceful. I had just finished up shooting a sunset swimwear shoot and we were walking back up the beach when we cam upon these two fisherman. the young boy disappeared in the shadow of his older brother, but his fishing pole shows sharply just below his big brother’s. Sometimes the beauty of family can simply add so gracefully to the beauty of Mother Nature and her evening colors. Luckily I still had my camera attached to my tripod so grabbing this shot was far too easy for the amount of pride I get from the capture. I know it is not perfect in it’s post production work, but the pure enjoyment of the moment is priceless!

Purple Haze – as this weekend rushes up to meet us, I would like to wish everyone an awesome, safe, and happy weekend! Also, a special announcement: This weekend will be my LAST weeekend of Active Federal Service. I will be signing out of the military onto my retirement leave next week! yay! As you all know, this means I will be moving…eww…packing and wrapping and sorting and ..well, you know what all has to be done! As a result, my blog entries may slow down for a couple of days until I can get my office set back up at home.
For now, this image has been extremely successful on my purchasing website so I hope all of you enjoy the color filter and the article. It just goes to prove that I have been around a while, and that I do love me some Jimmy Hendrix classic rock! Though one of my favorite tunes is Voodoo Child, I have not yet obtained a shot that I feel would accurately reflect that one. So, I will leave you with a portion of the lyrics;
“I am standing next to a mountain. chop it down, with the edge of my hand. well I can pick up all the pieces, might even make an island, might even..Raise a lil sand!” Happy weekend everyone!
