Poem: Water Always Wins

Reflecting to reconcile the passage of time
An artful adaptation before young eyes
I set aside distractions of the digital world
Choosing instead to carry a wooden walking stick and canteen
Traversing what were once elevated peaks
Dense rock now carved into gorges
The jagged, sharp edges refined and smooth underfoot
Warmed in the flow of nature
Water always wins.

Reflection of Sand

Based on a photograph taken several years ago on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, this stylized mirror image rendition highlights an interesting symmetry in underlying sands, as the tide receded. Visit my galleries for more…

Surface of Earth

Taken from a satellite in space orbiting planet Earth, this black and white image highlights terrain located in the western hemisphere. Oh, wait…haha. This black and white photograph was actually taken while hiking at Black Mountain, on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, and features evidence of erosion from water along a rock surface of the mountain. You’ll discover prints available in my gallery – suitable for any environment. So, check it out…

Awesome Geological Structures

It also has black bears living in the canyon – see earlier post. Most of all, however, the sandstone cliffs provide a spectacular visual experience! One of the first areas hikers encounter along the trail is the Turkey Roost Rockhouse:

Enjoy this wintertime, macro photography on a frigid day in Michigan, where swirling winds over the course of a few days have carved out interesting contours in this snow drift. Please visit my gallery at Fine Art America, where a variety of different print types are available for you to enjoy this image – within the warmth of your home of office!

Hope to see you soon!

Rustic Cabin

Enjoy my artistic rendition of an old, rustic cabin missing windows and roofing, exposed to the elements of nature and ravages of time. The view reminds me of peering through a dirt-covered screen, trying to discern more accurately the details of a distant structure.
