    Splendid light.

  • Thanks, Mike. It’s all about light, isn’t it. Good light makes everything golden, magical. One of my favorite parts of working in b&w is the challenge of achieving that balance between contrast and warmth. Elusive, that :)

  • Thanks, Jenny. I kept finding more stuff in those shadows :)

    you “live” in an “interesting place”

  • Heh. That’s a kind way to put it :)

    these pictures obviously relate to your surroundings (as seen in your photographs) but they also express (to me it seems anyway) a kind of big brain space, a love(?) of isolation or at least a feeling of it….
    some years ago I went to a fairly remote national park here in australia…it was a mountain formation in the middle of flat farming land, a couple of hours drive from any town, a place not many visited and requiring some effort to get to…there was a camping ground but no electricity, only very basic facilities, no other people at all, no mobile phone reception. One of us was unwell, it felt quite scary and isolated. We stayed for just one (very dark!) night and the next day went for a walk which led us into an amazing chasm, very silent and still. this was the destination, and as we sat to take refreshments two huge eagles entered the space and glided around. it was a breathtaking an experience and your pictures remind me of it.

  • Hi Soxy, thanks for sharing that experience, well told and enjoyed. Often photos can only capture a small part of such a place and experience and I enjoyed your account a lot. Very evocative and cinematic; you should work it into something if you’ve not yet. I do work best and spend much of my time alone. All I can with my partner ( but artmaking and writing (or at least the kind I do) is essentially solitary work. Feedback is wonderful and valued, but the process itself does require a lot of time alone at keyboard or drawing table etc. Generally suits me fine :) I do enjoy connecting with other artists, writers, etc, and RB is wonderful in that regard. In 2010-11 I edited and published a limited-run online art & lits quarterly called Ramshackle Review. Dunno if you’re familiar with Pamela Wilson’s work? but if you’ve not happened across this, thought you might enjoy: All best.

    Lovely image, solitary and peaceful. I can feel the mist

  • Thank you, Lisa, much appreciated. Mist is always a challenge. But it’s fun, and worth it.
