When the sky fire comes where will you be? Home, work, or set affront the TV? Always look to the sky at sunset should nature bestow its gift of fire, alighting the sunset sky in smoldering tones. Here the photographer earns her keep, and the nature lover observes perfection. We should all be so lucky.
Keep up with my latest photographs and thoughts
Here you'll find my complete archive of photographs—excepting my nine portfolio photos. I welcome you to drift through my array of photographs made since this site's launch in January 2014. While my best work manifests in landscape and nature photography, writing has proved a growing passion as time drifts on. I hope you enjoy.
Sometimes it is best to step back from tack sharp landscape photography. Have some fun and dabble with the form and movement that renders color and form as if at the painted ends of a brush stroke. A little intentional motion blur from time-to-time will set your creative mind free.
Photographs capture scenes to convey narrative in a visual medium. The story can be simple and straightforward, or it can mask in layers to tell multifaceted stories. It allows the viewer to imprint their own stories shaded by beliefs and experiences to connect in a personal way. This is the beauty of photographic storytelling.
Depression is insidious. Working its way from the edges it consumes apace as it slowly devours. Photographer Greg Molyneux shares a story from his own struggles battling against mental demons, hoping it encourages others to open up and share. Together we can bring darkness to light and break the stigma of mental illness for good.
Pastels revisited. Here’s another look at the cotton candy sky show photographed on September 27, 2019. In this image we look east at sunset and see the kind of color over the marsh we would expect to see at sunrise from this vantage. Sunsets, long may you reign.
There is something in a late September sky. Rainbow colors paint the sunset with pastel clouds spun across the sky. The cotton candy gossamer is backlit by a deep royal blue. Underneath it all the salt marsh, once proud and green, begins its annual retreat toward its browned suspension of life and vigor.
The evening approaches and cotton candy clouds thread across the sky. Pastels dance upon the strings. Stoic marsh grasses stand tall while glass calm waters reflect back the sunset tableau as would a mirror.
Life is hard. Salvos of burden, stress, and let downs fire across our bows whenever they are least wanted. Some shots finding their quarry. Yet if we look to nature we can find salvation and remember the beauty of life. The strength in every sunset.
Happy accidents will come, big or small, and they must always be welcome. Next time your lens fogs up from a rookie oversight, make some fantastical flower photographs until you look upon the real world with clarity and focus once again.
With autumn coming in quick it is near time to put flower photo season to bed. Here is a late season Black-eyed Susan blossom demure before strong late afternoon light; strong contrast driving home the power of the photograph.
