The following poem was left as a comment on this photo by my good friend and fellow RedBubbler Rosa Cobos

Sighing the music of Mist
The trees rooted in dreams
Watery mirror broken lines

Abstract photograph of trees reflected on moving water.

Taken on the Duck River at dusk; Henry Horton State Park, Tennessee.

This abstract uses a little different technique in camera painting; rather than moving the camera to create the effect, I look for movement in nature and hold the camera steady during a slow exposure to capture the motion.

Olympus E-3, 14-54 mm Lens.

I have also used this abstract as a background for my artwork Allow

This image makes a great wall set with Sparkling Winter Garden

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.
