The eye and the mind

Regular visitors here will note I’ve not posted for a while. All due to writing elsewhere in a creative fashion, and getting my head around a new goal: to publish an Ebook on landscape photography.

“Easy” I thought, but I’ve become fascinated of late by an aspect most easily described by Henri Cartier-Bresson:

Photography is not documentary, but intuition, a poetic experience. It’s drowning yourself, dissolving yourself, and then sniff, sniff, sniff – being sensitive to coincidence. You can’t go looking for it; you can’t want it, or you wont get it. First you must lose your self. Then it happens.

So while I’ve been losing myself, these images came and filled up the space!

The making of this came from the heart, born of love. How else can you work at 2 am after a Search and Rescue “do”! During which it cleared after our big dump for the early winter. The image went a bit viral and got used by the Winter Games, perhaps to assure those overseas, we had the “white stuff”
