The Hidden Meaning Of Things Expressed In Silence

A peaceful and beautiful place expressed in silence….

Hidden stream on a cool and brisk day

All things, and man as well, should be like nature, without measure. Hans Jean Arp

Nature is often hidden, sometimes overcome, seldom extinguished. –  Sir Francis Bacon

Nature has been mastering itself for some time now, and it is an honor to be able to capture its beauty. – Justin Beckett

  2. just beautiful. the rose color is soft and delicate, and contrasts sharply behind the crystal- like tree branches (they almost look like they are iced over.) Much to consider in this image’s complex simplicity 🙂

    • Thank you Sheila. Your analysis of the piece is precisely what I wanted to achieve. A slightly saturated color tone against a crystalized landscape. I usually begin this effect with an underlying layer of the colored pencil effect mixed with sharpen effects. I want the photograph to migrate slightly towards a pencil drawing as an end result.

  7. That’s quite a shot. It must have taken you quite a while to find this place.

    • Thanks David. Actually the location is at the beginning of the trail head at Table Rock State Park. But there are numerous of hidden waterfalls throughout the mountain here.
