Art

In the minds of many people an image is not “Art” unless produced by some hand process like painting, drawing, etc.

I have had many photographs receive the compliment, “Gee, it looks like a painting!”, as if somehow painted images (no matter how poorly done) are the gold standard by which images are judged.

“Looks just like a painting” is not a compliment to me.

Lately I have discovered some Photoshop processing the does a terrific job of changing a photograph into a watercolor style image. The processing is flexible enough that feeling and mood can be modified to express what I want to say.

Here are some images that started as photographs.

Subtle Autumn

There are a few small clues here that Autumn has begun.

Protected by the surrounding forest, the ferns around this decaying log are still rich green.

Processes happen slowly in this part of the forest, but they are inexorable in their progress.

The log will in time be reduced to its elements and return to the soil which gave it life.

Duchesnay Falls Revealed

Normally Duchesnay Falls covers her secrets with lots and lots of water.

In late Summer the water flow is often quite low and one can go places where it would be quite dangerous to attempt during most of the year.

The mystery of what causes the big waves and sprays of water is revealed when the water is low.

It is quite the novelty to stand in places that often are quite inhospitable.

Eagles

Over the past 10 years or so, Bald Eagles have been moving into the area.

Previously they were rarely seen. Nowadays, sightings are becoming more and more common and the locations of the nests are becoming known.

Time Passes

As Spring flows, beauty emerges.

It stays for a while and is then replaced.
