A Draught Of Sunshine

I pass this fallen tree nearly every day and always wanted to take some pictures on it. It looks like the setting of a Pre-Raphaelite or Romantic painting. I really enjoy showing nature in my pictures, but hopefully--at least on occasion, I like the setting to be emotive, like a Romantic painting. There's a tie between nature and our mind sets--the way a distant horizon line can open our thoughts to possibilities, or a towering mountain top makes us feel small and young in comparison. How can one look at a worn and fallen tree being lapped by the river and not wonder what storms have ravaged it? Even in soft, sunset light it is a reminder of nature's violence.

  8. I love these pictures! The back of your dress is soooo gorgeous. And that tree does give off a painting-like vibe. You should get someone to paint you there! That would be special indeed :)

  15. Very pretty dress and setting. :) Just FYI there's an Airwick ad that autoplays when I open your page... made me jump! Not sure if you intended this.

  16. @Jessica, sorry I'm not supposed to have any auto-play ads. I'll see if I can fix it.

  17. Its always so exciting when you finally get to use a place you've scouted for photos. I'm doubly impressed because not only is this gorgeous, but you do this with a timer! Some running to get out onto that log. But worth it.
