Default Gathering Colors

Gathering Colors is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at Hopeland Gardens in Aiken, SC. It is also another from the series I did on the tree sap. It got to where I would head right to that tree each time I shot there just to see what the sap had morphed into and what I could capture.

The Artist's Story blog post for this piece (and a couple of others) can be read here: Gathering Colors

Steve,

This is something so novel, a view I have never imagined. You have poked a penknife in the clock mechanism and dissected that act of a small cavity being filled up to the point where it will break outwith a micro water fall, at a scale early if ever seen.

Very well done. A good picture is just what it is. It demands and willingly gets our attention, devotion and appreciation. Kudos!

Still, I have no idea how to do this myself!

Asher

The lighting on this is excellent. Beautiful capture of what will become Amber in some many million years.

Asher,
Just another one of those lucky moments in the field. I noticed that the tree was missing a limb and that it was freshly cut so I wandered over there to see what abstract patterns I could find. I had no idea that it would turn into a source for creativity every time I was on site. Since that time, I look for cut limbs. :-)

Thank you. The lighting was one of my favorite aspects of the sap. I loved how the light on the subjects would (all by itself) produce different patterns. And the reflections and refractions were quite captivating and exciting. Just another reason why I'm so in love with the naturally abstract macro images that Mother Earth gives us.
