The Woman Photographer

A trip through Arizona’s deserts, and I found beauty unlike any I imagined… My head filled with the poetry of art…

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats

Canon G11
Textures used from Lenabem-Anna (76 and 215) and Kerstin Frank ( Texture Canvas)

Residing near the beach, I love to take my camera on photo-shoots when there is an impending storm, darkened skies, with the threat of rain or even snow! The shadows call to me and the fog is my friend. I hear sounds…yet most of the surroundings lie hidden from view. This allows me to escape into my own world, creating the next canvas for another of my “paintings.”

    Like viewing the desert scene through a kind of cross between cloth of gold and very fine-mesh screening. Magnificent golden light brings out the foreground elements, but the hill layers give the image its great depth.

  • I love your description of what you see here, Celeste…Thank you!
