Textures, colores, curves, and shapes. The details of imagery. Like a turtle shell, bright and standing out from the dark background surrounding it. Details in nature are so intriguing to me. The only way to really discover it is to stand quietly for a moment. Listen, then slowly scan the area. Study the environment. Use the microscope and zero in. Maybe a color, maybe a texture, maybe just a very slight movement.
Close-up, detail of a weathered old red barn. Broken windows, with that abandoned feel, and ghosties lingering to tell a strange tale. Stories. It’s about the stories built within the images. Tell the tale, find the story. Preserve the moment.
Structures, architecture, an iconic imagery of labor and farming and agriculture. Wetlands still pooling from the rains of winter. There’s a story here and that’s what we look for isn’t it? The colors – the blues, the browns, the greens. Textures in the trees, the field, the sky, the water. Shadows and light. Lots to see here. Lots ot photograph and compose.
Landscape, and the bigger picture. Broaden the view where light and shadow can alter the vista. The way the sunlight burnishes the roof of an old barn, with mountains in the distance. There is detail also in landscape and the way the light captures that detail. The lines and angles defined by the shine of morning sunlight. Glimpses of remaining remaining snow in early spring. Slanted roof, curves of mountains and trees, horizontal rows of readied land for spring planting. That sense of sleepy awakening.
