Society moves at an ever-increasing pace; with cell phones and text messaging many people don’t take the time to look around them, to reflect. There is of course a time and place for these technologies, there is also a time and place for contemplation. Nature provides pools of wisdom in reflected objects if we take the time to look. Taking a moment or two to find stillness coupled with a rush of discovery energizes me in a balanced way. With these images I hope others will find that solace.
Water, soft and supple and rocks hard and unforgiving create a balance. They exist and form the nature of each-other. The water molds the stones, the rocks determine the waters flow. This relationship in nature we carry in our souls.
When the ice age carved out our landscapes dramatic shifts occurred. Some were sharp, steep transitions where waterfalls were created. For me the energy from the ionizing water as it cascades over a waterfall clears my mind so I can look at challenges afresh. The rush of water awakens something deep within the soul. In my photographs I hope to convey that excited rush of creation with a balance of where the earth now resides.
