Sea of Tranquility

Sea of Tranquility

Calming, inviting, and relaxing—Sea of Tranquility is a particularly serene birds-eye view of vast open waters.

Initially I was intrigued by the visible detail in the water. Fields of seaweed created dark masses under the water, alternating with brilliant aqua highlights created by the sun reflecting off of the white sand, and layered with a subtle wash of color revealing the ship paths of voyages long past.

While composing the shot, I was amazed at how the atmosphere was masterfully blending the colors of the sea and sky together. Then some interesting clouds in the distance caught my eye—a perfect compliment to balance the elements of sea below.

In creating an abstract photograph, not only am I thinking about the composition and colors, I also look for rich textures and interesting contrast between lights and darks.

This photograph is a great example of how textures and contrast come together to create a pleasant and striking black and white composition where the element of color is not even needed.

Burnt Orange

Burnt Orange

The color orange will challenge you. It’s not one that just likes to blend in with the crowd. And not every shade of orange has what I consider to be an aesthetic appeal. But every now and then, I stumble across a glorious shade of orange that stops me in my tracks.

This particular image caught my attention for a variety of reasons, but the light and dark highlights really help these tones pop to what I felt was a wow status for the color orange. I was grateful to capture it so I would have it to appreciate again and again.

Tropic Wind

Tropic Wind

These colors and textures are fascinating! But what I find the most intriguing are the shadows which were created by the nearby plants blowing in the wind. All these elements combine to evoke memories of pleasant times.
