Low Lying Rest

February 28, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The rains of the day have stopped and it's as if the rays of the sun are pulling the clouds from their low lying rest.


As the earth dries out a landscape that was hidden begins to appear in a mixture of reds, brown and green.

The mystery of a landscape revealed, and the state of nature's abundance animate the evolving scene.

Energy moves throughout the Canyon as the weather shifts, and I sit and watch the clouds fly by.

Light and shadow play--like desire and need-- and I try to find a compromise between the two as I point the lens at canyon wall.

The canyon appears to me like a hulking brown bear whose coat of fur is drying slowly in the evening light.

The sun has set behind me-- behind the ridge-- and the canyon goes dark while the rising clouds hold the light, still. 

Finally dusk falls over the entire scene, but the clouds still swirl and throw a little light as they stir.

In the blue hour I take one last look before walking away from a landscape I love.

Aloha,
