three firs

These three fir trees grow at the side of the path to the beach, and I’ve passed them many times without taking particular notice. But on this day the soft winter sun seemed to shine on them just right, highlighting the detail in the trunks while drawing out the pastel tones of the woodland foliage.

a dream of spring

Recently I’ve been experimenting with images of water reflections, loosely inspired by impressionist artist Claude Monet’s water lilies series. This particular photo was taken in a wetlands area where bits of grass and leaves in the water broke up the reflection of trees and sky, resulting in a somewhat dreamlike, ambiguous image.
