Storm Frame

Storm Frame, Sunrise, FL 2012

As a storm approaches the tree line at Markham Park in Sunrise, FL, the clouds, rain and trees are reflected in the lake, creating a frame around the scene. In South Florida the weather changes rapidly so compositions such as this need to be captured as they happen, because within seconds…they are gone.

SERIES: The Roads Less Traveled / The Vanishing Point

ROADS Country Road_0650

Country Road, East, Florida 2013

For as long as I have been creating images, I have been intrigued by the concept of the “vanishing point.” Railroad tracks, roads, pathways, all leading to the unknown. Here are a couple of country roads exemplifying the concept, one in the eastern U.S. and one in the western U.S.

To me, the series I have entitled: The Road Less Traveled, speaks not to where I have been…but to where I am going.

Capitol Snow

Denver Capitol in Snow, CO 2008

All the news about extreme weather in the Northeast and Midwest, got me thinking about images I have created in snow over the years.

With that in mind, as well as the constant barrage of political news, here is an image that combines the two but represents an example of a(n image of) Government…that actually works. The added fog is a metaphor for, …well you know.

To the Moon / Different Perspectives

Super Moon, 2013

When I capture the moon in images, I either make it the focal point, or a punctuation. In the top image, utilizing a long lens, I caught the glowing super full moon behind pink dusk clouds, shortly after sunset.

Below, early morning shell seekers comb the Sanibel, Florida seashore just after sunrise, as a full moon sets behind them.

New for 2014 / First Sunset Seascape

z Ft Laud Bch 1st Sunset 9827 Nik_lite

First Sunset, Ft. Lauderdale Beach, FL  2014

On my first opportunity to shoot a sunset Seascape in 2014, I came across this combination of clouds and fading sunlight off of Ft. Lauderdale Beach. I added some foreground interest with a bit of beach and sea grass, and some slight motion to the waves, resulting in a painterly effect.

Hopefully, the promise of this scene, and the new day to follow…are a sign of good things to come.
