Entry Description

In landscape photography, imagination is the key to unlocking new perspectives that often are overlooked. On the surface, “Beyond” appears to be merely a fishing pier. A look beneath reveals a green, feathery carpet of water that takes us past our starfish host and into the light Beyond. In essence, that is my world. My life consists of observing and creating from spectacular light shows nature displays at rare moments in time. Capturing great reflective light transforms a normal photograph into a timeless image.
