Traveling Landscapes

I actually do not shoot a lot of landscapes. Details tend to draw my eye. You might say I don’t see the forest so well because I’m so enamored of the trees! But occasionally “the big picture” wins out, and I come up with a landscape worth sharing.

Mirage

I’m standing on West End Beach photographing the westernmost end of the town of Dauphin Island about a mile away. It has been a long day of walking. Indeed, I walked far enough that I was completely out of sight of these houses for a long time. Hours! Were they real, shimmering there in the distance? Or was I seeing things?

Mirage is in a juried exhibition called “Landscapes: Serene and Savage” at the MVA (Modern Visual Arts) Gallery at 35 E. Elizabeth Ave. in Bethlehem, PA.

Peace in the Time of Pandemic

You have seen Peace in the Time of Pandemic before. It won an award in our Louisiana Master Naturalist Association annual photo competition, and it has been exhibited in two earlier shows.

Currently it’s hanging in a show called “Lost & Found” at Core New Art Space at 6851 W. Colfax Ave, Lakewood, CO. The theme does, indeed, have to do with pandemic: What did you lose? Perhaps your job? A loved one? O just your sense of humor? And what did you find? Your voice? A few extra pounds?

I found the moment of peace represented by this photo out at Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge on a misty, foggy day. How grateful I am for this natural treasure so close to home!
