Perpetual Motion by Stan Wojtaszek

Canvas Prints

Being a main lander, something that intrigues me is the motion of the water along the costal shorelines. Even though the water looks calm, below the surface it is always moving, splashing up on shore when water meets land.

I was back in La Scie, NL., attempting to catch this motion in a still image. During this particular exposure, a number of waves crashed over these rocks and then receded, producing a soft result. I’d estimate the rocks were submerged for one third of the time.

Waiting until the sun had set, well below the horizon, resulted in beautifil pastel colours, adding to the overall effect.

    Please consider adding this beautiful image to Canadian Artists and Art

  • You know what, Marilyn?
    As human beings, we all seem to strive for acceptance; we’re social creatures.
    As artists, we also strive for acceptance; to a large degree, that’s why we practise our art.
    But, when another artist expresses the amount of interest in our work, as you have done today, we must be truely humbled and in awe. Today, we are.
    Thank you so very much for your comments and faves.
    They really are inspiring.
