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.

Your words, that's beautiful. I too see nature and the environment in similar fashion. The outfit fits the occasion, or rather painting :)

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 :)

Jessica said...

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.

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

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

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.

Emily Peebles said...

You are such a lovely writer. I think nature is so important as well. I spend most of my time outside for that reason. These photos certainly emit a Romantic painting vibe!
