It can be hard putting our emotions in words, at least I find it so.

Occasionally, something about a scene just epitomizes a certain feeling, both visually and viscerally for me, and this is one of them.

I’ve called this image ‘sadness’.



Bit of a Rush

I get a bit of a kick out of risky maneuvers when I’m photographing! I fear it’ll all end it tears and camera-catastrophe one day, but until then …… 🙂

This photograph was taken in DuPont State Forest in North Carolina, laying flat with my camera on a rock at the base of a waterfall, with the water rushing beneath and around me!  It was so exhilarating — everything was blocked out by the noise and splashing, and I loved the feeling of motion from those torrents of water going past. Every now and again a heart-stopping extra surge came over the top, almost reaching me … but just not quite. At least not that day!


The mind creates an enchanted dell.

It’s funny how the mind affects the way you view things.
I’ve walked past this place a hundred times during the day when, in reality, it looks nothing like this. But each time, in my head, this is what I see.
The spot always reminds me of an enchanted dell — somewhere that little imps or spirits might dwell, if you go in search of them! I decided to try and recreate what I imagined into this scene, by photographing the location at night!
