About me
My name is Thomas Murphy and I love the forest and wildlife areas of Wisconsin and would like to share my thoughts and the pictures I have taken of the natural areas of Wisconsin. Come share in my collection of what I feel to some of the finest scenes and images of the forests, lakes, rivers and marshes that Wisconsin has to offer. I like to go to pristine and secluded areas where nature resides quietly and I feel the resulting “lost” images are profoundly unique. I am usually “in the moment” when I take these pictures. When I say in the moment I mean a sense of excitement often precedes what my eye captures through the camera. I never stage these shots but seem to be in the right place and time when I shoot them. And when I transfer them from my camera and view them on my computer screen I realize a sense of surrealism that resonates with me yet again to the time they were taken and exemplify the beauty of nature. Please peruse my sites and experience the beauty of being there as I did.

The Metal Flower- a story about one of my paintings

The Metal Flower / She ruled for a very long time on this earth and was smugly satisfied with her role. / Many men indeed became like her and the cold hollow voice that whispers in the wind and mocks goodness. / Her fault was that she cared little for where she lived as her realm was the howling of the spirit world, because that is from where she governed. / She awoke one summer morning and notic…

Abstract Valley

Abstract Valley / A glacier approached the She Spirit as she stood admiring creation, the gigantic Metal Flower. “I must do something quickly or the glacial drift will destroy my creation!” / Aloud she said, “The God of creation has forsaken me. He now wants to destroy my ‘Metal Flower’!” / “What can I do to preserve its beauty!” she asked herself. / With the hand of her wind she uprooted ‘Meta…
