Wild Nature

Date: February 20, 2013 Category: , , ,

The natural world is part of us wherever we live, city or forest. If we are too long apart from the forests, trees, rivers and oceans we become starved of our essence. ‘Wild Nature’ tells a story where the images are fluid and moving with patterns and emotions. Rather than define a moment the story moves with depth of vision into the subject. Initiated as a personal view of nature the collection has grown over a period of ten years. The images have a style that reflects the origins of painting and drawing.

“A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one’s suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.” – Hermann Hesse

Morning Mist

In the Dordogne region of Southern France – I woke one morning to the most gorgeous sunrise, the morning mist was heavy and filtered the pale sunlight. The air was cold and gentle, everything I saw was covered in a veil of pale translucent golden white. As the sun rose, the trees, covered in jewel drops of water, began to sparkle a million jewels. The sun warmed the air and the mist began to lift, the feeling was magical and the day ahead full of the promise of adventure – with the hope of being totally lost in France.

Nature itself is abstract and transient. When we sit in the forest or by the ocean we become absorbed with a feeling, aroused by the sounds and colors.
Photography is a way to express our own personal essence and moment in time.

River Ocean is a celebration of water in all its varied forms. The ominous power of water in a constant state of flux, fascinating to photograph, able to hold the color of the sky or the surrounding rocks and plants. We relate to water as a key element, our own bodies comprise 70% and our emotions rise and fall with the tides.

The sheer diversity of its forms stirs us deep within, whether we sit watching a turbulent ocean or the peaceful nature of a stream or slow moving river. Water never ceases to amaze and reflect our own emotions and feelings.

Capturing the essence of water has always been something I hold very dear. I especially love to walk along river beds, to explore between the rocks and the unpredictable journey of the water as it returns to its own source.
